DNS is the acronym for Domain Name System (or Service or Server). It is an Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. Domain management is a important part of your website’s health.
Web Management have a number of tools that we use to assist our clients to identify and manage domain names.
The internet is really based on IP addresses. Domain names are alphabetic, which make them easier to remember, therefore every time a domain name is used, a DNS service must translate the name into the corresponding IP address. For example, the domain name www.forexample.com might translate to 184.108.40.206. Web Management’s DNS services include purchasing, renewals, maintaining, transferring and setting up domain names for our clients.
Domain Name Servers (DNS) are basically the internet’s equivalent of a phone book. They maintain a directory of domain names and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.
This is necessary because, although domain names are easy for people to remember, computers access websites based on IP addresses. On a basic level, domain names are important because the internet’s addressing scheme is not very effective without them.
DNS Management is to manage or to look after the Domain name on behalf of a company or person.
Web Management take on the responsibility of all aspects of the Domain Name for our clients, we ensure that the Domain Name is pointing to the correct server ensuring that when visitors type in the domain name that the correct website is rendered. We ensure that the Domain Names are current and paid up, preventing the site from going down for this reason. We manage the various records ensuring that the email is found if stored on a different server to the website. In short Web Management ensures that there are no DNS issues with the rendering of our client’s websites.
DNS Registration is the act of registering a domain name.
Web Management has a number of tools that we use to assist our client’s to identify available domain names that may be available. Our registration service can include management of the Domain Name or only the registration depending on what level of involvement our clients wish for us to be involved.
Many companies use multiple domains for different parts of the business such as individual products or services. For certain markets, keyword-loaded domains can be a significant advantage.
As a very small business with a limited budget, but by the nature of our business have the need for a very good web site, the choice of who to use for our new site was crucial. I commissioned WM-UK to re build my web site in such a way that i could add and amend content easily and without compromising the design element that had been approved. The look of the site had to stay the same even with my clumsy and limited working knowledge. Also, as photographers the images on the site needed to be the key element in the design and for ease of use in amending and adding to the collection. I now have a portfolio that is easily divided into the different areas of expertise and browsed by potential clients simply and most importantly, quickly. This has been so successful that the site is now twice the size it was when I started and has been responsible for a significant increase in business, paying for itself many times over. We now have clients in areas that we would never have considered reaching in the past. In view of this, I never have any hesitation in recommending WM-UK to anyone who asks regarding ours or their own web sites.
