    Do you know what DNS stands for

    I thought i would share this as i get alot of clients asking me. Hopefully this will give you a idea:

    (1) Short for Domain Name System (or Service or Server), an Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. Because domain names are alphabetic, they're easier to remember. The Internet however, is really based on IP addresses. Every time you use a domain name, therefore, a DNS service must translate the name into the corresponding IP address. For example, the domain name www.example.com might translate to 198.105.232.4.
    The DNS system is, in fact, its own network. If one DNS server doesn't know how to translate a particular domain name, it asks another one, and so on, until the correct IP address is returned.


    (2) Short for digital nervous system, a term coined by Bill Gates to describe a network of personal computers that make it easier to obtain and understand information

    DNS simply converts a domain name to an IP addresss , and IP address can be used for many domains. Unless of course they have an SSL CERT witch means they need a static , hopefully this answers your question , by the way good info above.
