What is DNS?
DNS stands for Domain Name System. This is the core technology that enables browsers and devices to convert domain names into IP addresses, and it allows the end user to access a website or use an email address.
If your DNS fails, users will no longer be able to reach your website. As well as being inconvenient for the individual trying to access your site or service, it can also lead to revenue loss for you, as well as damage to your reputation.
Find the right DNS solution
Having a dependable DNS is extremely important to the running of your website, and the solution you choose will depend on your performance requirements.
Standard UK-based DNS
Our standard UK-based DNS service is offered free of charge with every managed domain name you own and provides stable and reliable performance for your website and email.
