Domain names - DNS Service

What is DNS ?

Domain Naming Service (DNS) establishes the correspondence between the domain name of your site (e.g : francedns.com) and the IP address where it is hosted (e.g : 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 preferable to see sometimes mandatory to have two or more DNS servers to take advantage of redundancy (if one of the servers becomes unavailable), thus ensuring the availability of a domain name permanently.

    Default configurations are available through templates (Google Apps, ...) but you can create your own to easily apply on your domain names portfolio.
