About DNS

What is DNS?

Domain Name System (DNS) is a naming system for computers, services, or other resources connected to the internet or a private network. It translates more easily remembered domain names in to numerical IP addresses so that computers and services may be located online, think of it like the phone book for the web.

Why is it important?

Without DNS the internet simply would not function. DNS is what connects your domains and website to the web so that they can be found.
