Managed DNS Service in St. Louis

Connecting Customers to Your Website

Searching the web, checking email, and streaming videos is a part of modern-day life. When we use the internet, we want to access websites easily. We also want reliable and fast internet connections. DNS, or Domain Name System, is the technology that makes it possible for people to browse the Internet using easily-remembered domain names (such as www.example.com) instead of confusing IP addresses (like 192.0.2.1). You simply type in a domain name and let DNS do the rest. 

For businesses, DNS provides a number of advantages. It improves website performance by directing traffic away from overloaded servers. DNS also provides security benefits by allowing businesses to block malicious domains and redirect visitors to a safe website. In addition, DNS helps improve customer satisfaction by providing a consistent and user-friendly experience. In short, DNS is a powerful tool that can help businesses to improve their online presence.

Common Questions About DNS Services

How does DNS work?

DNS acts as a sort of “phone book” for the internet, translating human-friendly domain names into the numerical IP addresses that computers use to route traffic. When you type a website’s address into your browser, your computer contacts a DNS server to look up the IP address associated with that domain name. The DNS server then responds with the IP address, and your computer can then connect to the website.

What is a DNS service?

Managing DNS can be a complex and time-consuming task. DNS services can be provided by an in-house team or by a third-party provider. Many businesses opt for the latter option, as it frees up IT staff to focus on other tasks. DNS managed services can also provide a higher level of security and reliability than businesses would be able to achieve on their own.
