namehelp post-install

Thanks for installing namehelp!

You're almost ready to go — there are just a few more setup steps:

  • Configure namehelp (IP address as your computer's DNS server. Follow these instructions, but use instead of address specified on that site.

    The address refers to your own computer -- "there's no place like". :)
  • If you are using the Chrome browser, please install the namehelp helper extension (click here). This will give you easy access to the namehelp dashboard via the icon in the upper-right corner of your browser.
  • If you are not using the Chrome browser, you can access the dashboard here: http://localhost:53533/—simply bookmark this page. This site is only accessible from the computer where namehelp is installed. We are currently developing extensions for browsers other than Chrome.

Installing a browser extension is necessary to let namehelp run personalized benchmark tests.
