DNS and You

DNS and You

We all know and use domain names to find the websites we want to go to.  They are the text versions (www.inodecloud.com) of the Internet Protocol addresses (IP) that locate the content we want to find.  The concept is pretty simple – domain name systems (DNS) are registries that link textual domain names to numerical IP addresses like a phone book – but DNS can be applied in ways that make websites accessible in ways that take technical and regional differences into account. Before we move on to application of DNS you should know a few things about how they work.  There are several factors like aliases (CNAME), reverse DNS lookups and zone based registration that make DNS protocols powerful tools for consumers and providers. DNS Zone Authority Zone authority is the system that Domains use to delegate space to subdomains that are found at the same location (IP address).  Your IP address is tailored to your domain name and changes as new pages are added to your website.  For example, individual IP addresses begin at 0.0.0 (root host which can be your computer or your ISP’s root server) and grow as new locations are added to server space.  A zone is a portion of your IP address that is reserved for subdomains that require autonomy. CNAME Aliases are used in conjunction with search engine optimization.  They are additional domain names that link to the same address.  Aliases can serve several purposes like accounting for misspelled domain names and increasing your search engine ranking.  Platforms like Interworks come with tools for adding aliases to your domain.  Otherwise you could...
