How to Manage DNS for Hosting Account
The Domain Name System (DNS) is used to translate a Domain Name into its corresponding IP Address. In simple terms, DNS is the way your browser knows where to take you when you're on the internet.

If you've purchased regular Email Hosting, Web Hosting, or Windows Hosting with Crazy Domains, then you also have the option to manage your DNS via your Hosting Manager.
