Back to business, so how do I park domain into my Wapkiz site?.
Well, that is simple, before proceeding to anything here, we’ll like to broaden your knowledge about DNS and Wapkiz DNS
So what is DNS?
DNS simply means Domain Name System which is very essential part of Internet System. It simply maps a FQDN (Full Qualified Domain Name), which is in human readable form. For example, www.grprovince.com to IP address, which are used by computer machine, e.g. 18.104.22.168. For this process, DNS uses zone files that are stored in servers, which contains resource records to map a domain name to an IP address.
Is that all?
Nah! Namesever is also needed to be point in order to make it work/
So what is Nameserver?
Nameservers are a part of Domain Name System. These DNS servers keep the records of which domain is connected to which IP address. Nameservers allow us to use a domain instead of IP address of the DNS server. When a visitor types the URL of your domain then the DNS server tells the browser that from which server it should load content from. In easy words, Nameservers define the current DNS provider of your domain.
