Telnet is an "old" form of computer communication, where you (the client) dial into a host, and log on as a user. The telnet interface is Text only, and you usually have access to a specific telnet host application, which allows you to do certain things on the host computer (search for books, change computer settings, etc.)

I don't know why you need it to start your domain, but everyone should have one . . . If you're running Win95 (NT?) you've already got one, called telnet.exe, to use it just type in
telnet foobar.com (or the IP address)
There's so many other ones out there, you'll need to choose the best one for your needs. To find the right shareware telnet, go to www.yahoo.com and type "telnet shareware"
or better yet, go to www.shareware.com and type "telnet"
