DNS stands for Domain Name System, which is the largest digital database in the world, containing information about every web site on the internet. Every web site online has an IP address that is its actual internet location, and this number is used to locate the web site within the database.  The data that tells the web server how to respond to your input is known as the DNS records, or zone files. These records play a vital role in the functionality of the internet, the DNS is crucial system for today's Internet.

WARNING: Editing your DNS information may stop your website or email to stop functioning. Incorrectly set up DNS records cause many different problems to administrators of web servers and company infrastructure.

* NOTE: Your DNS modification will be executed and implemented on our DNS server immediately. However, as with any DNS change, it may take up to 24 hours for you to see the effect in your browser.
