What is DNS?

Description of DNS

DNS stands for Domain Name Service. It allows us to use host and domain names for locations on the internet instead of numeric IP addresses. For example, if the web server's IP address where your web site is located is IP we can use DNS to map a name to that server, such as: www.mydomain.com.


Who handles the DNS for my domain? Your domain registrar (the company you registered your domain name with) keeps and maintains a record of the DNS nameservers that service your domain name. When hosting with us, you will need to set the nameservers at your domain registrar to the ones listed on the following page: Our Nameservers

Customers who puchase their domain names through us will have our nameservers preset automatically.
