DNS? Wassat?

Domain Name System. Often described as the phonebook of the Internet, when someone enters yourdomain.com into their browser, a DNS server will ferry this request to the right web server for the page you requested. DNS is also used to route your email messages to the correct mail servers.

 

The registrar where you bought your domain may well offer a DNS service, but we recommend using Cloudflare for DNS to all our clients.
