Perhaps the register landing page should point to a page with this 
(and maybe a plug for AOO and the Apache Way, etc.)

a website's name to its Internet address. This error is most often caused by having no connection

devices you may be using.Check your DNS settings. Contact your network administrator if you're
not sure what this means.Try disabling network prediction by following these steps: Go to
the wrench menu>  Preferences>  Under the Hood and deselect "Predict network actions

this option again for improved performance.Add Google Chrome as a permitted program in your
firewall's or antivirus software's settings. If it is already a permitted program, try deleting
it from the list of permitted programs and adding it again.If you use a proxy server, check
your proxy settings or contact your network administrator to make sure the proxy server is
working. If you don't believe you should be using a proxy server, adjust your proxy settings:
Go to Applications>  System Preferences>  Network>  Advanced>  Proxies and deselect
any proxies that have been selected.Error 105 (net::ERR_NAME_NOT_RESOLVED): Unable to resolve
the server's DNS address.Please let me know where I can go to register my product.Thanks,Tobias
