How to manage DNS settings for your client's website?

The domain name system (DNS) is the way that Internet domain names are located and translated into internet protocol (IP) addresses. The domain name system maps the name people use to locate a website to the IP address that a computer uses to locate a website. For example, if someone types pagevamp.com into a web browser, a server behind the scenes will map that name to the IP address 66.216.67.90.

The most widely used DNS record types, and their purpose are as follows:

  • A - specifies IP addresses corresponding to your domain and its subdomains.
  • MX - specifies where the emails for your domain should be delivered.
  • CNAME - specifies redirects from your domain's subdomains to other domains/subdomains.
  • TXT - these records are used to store text-based information related to your domain. One of their most common uses is for SPF data. SPF, or Sender Policy Framework, is an attempt to control forged e-mail.

To manage your client's Domain settings - the Domain needs to be registered through Pagevamp.

Or, if the domain was registered elsewhere, it should have its DNS set as:

dns1.stabletransit.com

dns2.stabletransit.com.
