Domain Name Server
What is DNS?
DNS stands for Domain Name System. This system is used to associate a domain name (e.g. www.cordhosting.com) with one or multiple IP addresses. Now, an IP (Internet Protocol) address is like a phone number to a computer. Every computer has one but just like a phone number, sometimes an IP address can be hard to remember. This is why there is DNS. Instead of having to remember, 188.8.131.52 we only have to remember www.cordhosting.com.
And why do I need to know this?
The domain registrar you purchased your domain name from will assign two IP addresses to your domain name. These IP addresses are also called nameservers. So, with your domain name, you will have to manage a Primary and a Secondary Nameserver. These nameservers determine what server, on the Internet, your domain name will propagate to. In order to start receiving email through Cord Hosting Server, you will need to update your Primary and Secondary Nameservers to: ns1.savvis.net and ns2.savvis.net.
How do I manage/update my Nameservers?
The only way to manage or update your nameservers and other information regarding your domain name is through your domain registrar. Remember, your domain registrar is where you purchased your domain name. If you purchased your domain name through Cord Hosting, then your domain registrar will be Enom. All domain registrars will provide their customers with information and a manage area where you can login to update your nameservers. Simply, go to your domain registrars website and login to your domain manage area to update your namerservers. We have provided at the top of this page the Cord Hosting DNS information you will need to propagate your domain name to Cord Hosting Server. Also, when you make a change to your DNS, that change is not instant. It will take at least 24-72 hours for your domain name to propagate to Cord Hosting Server.
Manage/Update my DNS at my registry?
How do I know where my DNS is propagating?
There are many ways to find where your domain name is propagating. We will provide you with the two easiest ways that will help you the most. The first would be to check a WHOIS Search Engine. A WHOIS Search Engine will give you information about every domain name that is registered. We recommend Every WHOIS (http://www.everywhois.net) to find information about your domain name.
