DNS (Domain Name Services) is the phonebook of the Internet. Websites operate on an IP Address either IPv4 or IPv6. Under most shared environments multiple websites run on a single IP address. To use your domain name an A record needs to be made pointing your domain name or subdomain to the IP address of the hosting platform you are using.
First you must point your domain registrar to the nameservers that you plan on using for DNS Hosting. We use SRSplus for our Domain Registrar and Cloudflare for DNS hosting.
After directing the proper nameservers in your registrar its time to go to Cloudflare.
Cloudflare is a powerful tool that we use for DNS hosting, code optimization, CDN and an additional layer of security for our websites. Within DNS you can CNAME to other sites so that multiple domain names can point to one place. You can use MX records to control email flow and even TXT records to lock down email using SPF, DKIM and DMARC.
We believe in making the Internet more secure and easier to use for all. This can’t be done without using secure hosting protected by multiple layers of protection, taking advantage of powerful security and DNS tools such as Cloudflare. Using multiple tools ensures our websites are protected in a way that does not leave the website and user vulnerable.
