DNS, or the "Domain Name System" is the magical service behind all of the domain names in the world that is responsible for mapping your IP address to the domain name you choose, and magically displays your website. It can be complicated, but our goal is to help make it easier for you.

This guide will provide you with everything you need to know about how the DNS works, and - more importantly - how to configure your DNS for your website, email, and special circumstances (like setting up subdomains). There is also a section on troubleshooting for popular issues and a glossary of terms techies use when talking about the DNS.
