Support DNS Overview


DNS Overview

After you register a domain name, you only own the right to use it, but you cannot access your website directly through it or use it as an email suffix for emailing. Domain name system (DNS) resolution is a required step before you can use your domain. We usually remember domain names, but machines can only recognize IP addresses. A domain name corresponds to an IP address, and the conversion process between them is called DNS resolution, which is an automated process that can only be executed by particular DNS servers. Essentially, DNS means to convert a domain name (such as www.dnspod.com) into an IP address (such as that can be read by machines.
