What is Domain and DNS Management?
Domain and DNS services are important components of the internet that help in the functioning of websites and email systems.
A domain is a human-readable address for a website or an email system, such as www.example.com or mail.example.com. It is essentially a name that identifies a specific website or email system on the internet.
Domain Name System (DNS) is a system that maps the domain names to IP addresses, allowing computers to locate and access the websites and email systems associated with them. When you enter a domain name into your browser, your computer contacts a DNS server to get the corresponding IP address of the website you’re trying to access.
DNS services provide a way to manage domain names and their corresponding IP addresses. With these services, you can register a domain name, configure its DNS settings, and manage the email and web services associated with it.
DNS services also provide an important layer of security, as they can be used to block access to malicious websites, redirect users to alternative websites in case of downtime, or provide enhanced security features such as DNSSEC, which helps to prevent against DNS spoofing and other types of cyber attacks.
Domain and DNS Management Services
DTAS can help you manage your Domain and DNS records which can be confusing and risky if you are not sure what you are doing. Adding or deleting the wrong record could affect your website or mail service. If you are moving your website, setting up or changing your email service provider, providing domain ownership verification and even renewing an SSL certificate, you will need to update your DNS correctly. We can also assist with domain transfers, custom nameservers and domain registrations.
While we can use any service you request, we prefer to use Google Domains as the registrar to allow the delegation of management to user account levels. This allows you to provide access to management capabilities without having to do password sharing which can be complicated when multi-factor authentication is configured.
