The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network.
Why do i need DNS ?
When you visit a domain such as hostingwalk.com, your computer follows a series of steps to turn the human-readable web address into a machine-readable IP address. This happens every time you use a domain name, whether you are viewing websites, sending email or listen to Spotify.
Before you can use our DNS Manager
First you need to register a domainname our system will create automaticly standard DNS Records, but also you need
to use our Nameservers ( like ns1.domain.com / ns2.domain.com) before DNS records are working.
You can find the DNS Managere here: Domainnames -> Manage Domain -> DNS Manager
What you need to know to use DNS Manager
There are 4 different DNS fields:
Name: Here you fill in mostly your Hostname or Sub-domain, Type @ to use your whole domain.
Type: Here you can choose a Record Type like: A / NS / CNAME / MX and more.
TTL: Time To Live for most records A/NS/CNAME the default is 0. but for MX (mail) records you can set it to 10 or 20
Target: This is mostly the IP adress where you want to connect to.
Lets say you want to link you domain1.com to 184.108.40.206
Naam: Type TTL Target
