DNS Hosting services FAQ
What is DNS?
DNS stands for Domain Name Service. DNS is an Internet Standard for resolving the names of individual machines
into IP addresses and vice versa. This resolution is performed by machines called name servers, and these name servers turn things
like the names of web and mail servers into IP addresses.
Do I need DNS?
The Internet functions using IP addresses, not names, so a name server is necessary if you are going to use a website or mail server. Not everyone needs
DNS. If the machine in question is not supposed to be found on the internet, a good way to hide it is to NOT provide DNS for it. It doesn't stop
people from connecting to the IP address, but it does make it harder to find the machine.
Is DNS the same thing as a Domain or a Domain Name like "my-company. COM" ?
Not quite. DNS is a
service, not an object. DNS is the process of turning the name you register into an IP address so that humans can remember
the name, and the computers, which use numbers, can translate the name the humans understand into the numbers they understand.
Why doesn't everyone have a website?
