DNS stands for "domain name server." A domain name server is the computer (or one of several) that "serves" requests for your Web site or email address. Think of a DNS as the battery for your domain name. The more powerful the DNS, the more likely people will be able to see your site, send you email, etc. If the DNS isn't strong enough, people may have trouble reaching you.
Most companies offer customers one or two domain servers -- one main server, and one for backup. When you register your domain name with us, your domain name is backed by six servers distributed around the U.S. The result? Superior connectivity and reliability.
