What is DNS ?


Domain Naming Service (DNS) establishes the correspondence between the domain name of your site (e.g : netim.com) and the IP address where it is hosted (e.g : 213.244.184.122) on the Internet. A DNS server is a machine which makes this correspondence.

To be active on the Internet, a domain name must have at least one DNS server. However, it is advised, and sometimes mandatory, to have two or more DNS servers to take advantage of redundancy (if one of the servers becomes unavailable), thus ensuring permanent availability of a domain name.

  • Hybrid with a distribution of secondary servers


DNS zone configuration


Depending on your needs, it may be necessary to set the domain's DNS configuration to make it point to a specific IP address or define mail servers.

These settings are manageable in the control panel and allow to change DNS records such as A, MX, TXT, CNAME, ..., or SOA records (TTL, refresh, ....).

Default configurations are offered through templates (Google Apps, etc). You can also easily apply your own templates to your domain portfolio.
