DNS’ stands for ‘nameserver management machines’. They are used by server administrators to control access to the nameservers, or IPs, that the sites on the server have been enlisted to. The DNS servers can be network operating systems, or they can be computers that act as DNS servers. DNS servers have become a vital part of the Internet’s infrastructure, as many users now rely on the Internet as their primary source for all of their computer related needs. Without DNS servers there would be no way to access the Internet at all, since anyone with enough knowledge of computer operations could just change the addresses that people connect to on the server and therefore prevent people from being able to gain access. This is one of the main reasons that many people want to learn more about DNS’ and how it works.
It is often very easy for new users to go on the Internet, log onto a web page and find that they are unable to access the website they wanted to. For instance, a user might click on a web page that has a logo that they like. They will see a link that takes them to that logo, but once they click on the link, the page is changed and they are taken to a page that is not the one they were looking at. This is a clear example of how DNS’ services can prevent such problems. If you know which IP address belongs to the website that you want to visit, you can simply request that IP address using your DNS’ service. Since the DNS server will be able to determine exactly which IP address is associated with the domain name that you typed in, it will ensure that you are able to view that website.
There are plenty of different DNS’ services out there that are available to anyone who wants to learn more about them. Some of the most popular services that people tend to turn to the most are Free DNS, which offer free hosting for users, and Namecheap, which offer inexpensive rates. These two companies are both capable of handling large amounts of traffic, but they differ in a few ways.
Namecheap is much more robust than its sister-site Free DNS. While it would probably be completely impossible for you to take down Namecheap (the site is several times larger than the company’s own servers), you could still take down one of their servers. Namecheap’s servers are hosted on data centers, which are protected by firewalls. While this level of security would not be ideal for a computer to possess on its own, it is extremely useful when you have thousands of customers all connecting to your site from various locations.
On the other hand, Free DNS allows you to register any domain name that you desire. You would be able to enter any domain name, even ones that are already taken. This means that you would be able to circumvent any type of limitations that might be put on a particular domain name. While you might be able to purchase a name that was already taken, if you are selling a domain name that you own, you would need to have the legal right to do so.
At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter which one you choose as long as both of them provide you with the service that you need. You can use one or the other, it doesn’t matter which one you decide to use as long as it provides you with what you need and you get it for the right price. In the end, getting what you need and getting it for the right price is all that matters in the end.
