    Can someone create their own Registar, DNS, and hosting?

  3. Finally… someone who can explain it "like I'm a 2-year-old." Thanks!

  4. Honestly…Excellent work I needed that.!

  5. What is DNS?
    3 elements you need

    1. Domain name: <– Must be registered every year; Is like your address

    2. DNS: The configuration trail for your DNS.
    i) 'Your A' or WWW Record : Web hosting
    ii) 'MX' or email Record: Tells anyone who types in your domain name where to send emails to when emails are addressed to our domain name. i.e. a server, Office 365 or what

    3. Web Host
    Contains Pages. Each page is an individual file that sits on a server somewhere that must be up 24 hours.
    Sitting on a Server somewhere that is on 24 hours a day

    -> Bob types in your Domain name (1 Domain)
    -> Bob gets the DNS 'A' Record which points him to right place (2 DNS)
    -> That right place is located on our Web Hot (3 Web Hosting)

  6. It's fine, but it's also common for DNS records to be held and /or managed in cPanel of with webhosting as well. Not to mention with services such as cloud-flair and/ or other DNS services. And so I'd say this information is quite stale in this day and age.

  7. Excellent explanation Well done!

  13. This makes sense. In my case I used different providers for DNS management and web hosting. I registered my domain name with and manage the DNS records with them because they are very flexible with subdomains and provide all types of DNS records. However, they do not provide web hosting service. I then use InMotion hosting to host my website.

  14. Thank you! That was really useful information. I've been trying to get my head around this concept for my small business for a few days and in a few minutes you explained it all 🙂

  15. Nice! In Sydney I prefer Cloudways managed cloud hosting, they also have a datacenter located there, and this is best for me because my sites load time is good due to it.

  16. I would have liked you to go into more detail about dns and talk about nameservers
