Frequently Asked Questions

Why is DNS critical for any business?

The Domain Name System (DNS) is the backbone of the infrastructure of the Internet. Without it, we would struggle to find resources on the Internet. And no one would be able to find your business.

Your business can't have an online presence without DNS. Having control over the configuration of your DNS helps you connect to other services like email and webhosting.

By using a managed DNS service like DNSimple, you don't have to worry about stability and reliability of your DNS. This improves website performance and your visitors' experience.

What is DNS used for?

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a naming system for computers, services, and any resource on the Internet.

A good analogy is that it's used as the "phone book" for the Internet. It translates human-friendly names into IP addresses that identify computers or services. For example, www.dnsimple.com translates to

When your browser requests a website like dnsimple.com, the DNS provider for dnsimple.com responds with the corresponding IP address to the browser. Then your browser downloads the content for the corresponding webpage on dnsimple.com and displays it.

How much does a DNS server cost?

There are many considerations in the cost of a DNS server, including maintenance and software upgrades that must be done to avoid issues like exploits and downtime.

You'll need to have backups in the event of outages, and you might need to refresh the hardware periodically to provide better responses to your visitors.

All of this effort, time, and money is not core to your business. With the DNSimple business plan, we take care of all the maintenance, upgrades, backups, and any attacks that might happen.
