What is the Domain Name System DNS?
Australia ranked among the top 10 for domain name registrations or websites, in the first quarter of this year (2018).
However according to the top Google searches, despite our love for websites many of us are puzzled when we come across the Domain Name System.
The Domain Name System is what holds the internet together. Every web request from business, individual users, or mobile devices, begins with a DNS query.
In simple terms, it is a database of websites and IP addresses.
The DNS translates a domain name such as www.thinktechnology.com.au to an IP address, as well as directing emails to your domain name. Domain names have various suffixes, such as .net, .com.au, .edu, or .org.
You have to engage a web-hosting service – either cloud-based, dedicated or shared – when a website for a domain is needed and the service can also be used for hosting files, documents, images and similar content.
It’s your web hosting provider who enters your website’s IP address into the Domain Name System so your business can be accessed on the internet.
Before that though, you need to choose and register your unique domain name, which is your website address.
You can do this yourself online through a domain name registrar, or most web hosting providers offer domain name registration and DNS hosting.
