DNS an abbreviation for “Domain Name System”, is an integral part of how the internet functions today. However, the way that DNS works is often quite mysterious for new administrators.
DNS controls your domain name’s website and email settings. When visitors go to your domain name, its DNS settings control which company’s server it reaches out to provide you all required service(s). DNS entries could include records such as cnames, A record, mx records, txt, ptr and so on. What ever you have on the individual record field determines which server your domain request the listed service(s) from.
It is worth noting that not all Web host avails their customers with a DNS manager tool.
