Getting started guide: Premium DNS

Domain Name System (DNS) Records are used to control and indicate the location of resources on the Internet. They do this by translating domain names into IP Addresses. Basically, DNS is the way that we can translate human-friendly domain names (such as example.com) into computer-friendly strings of numbers (such as 192.0.2.1).

It's a technology that we use every day without ever thinking about what's really happening on the back end. However, DNS is a fairly old technology in internet terms and there are some ways that attackers can exploit weaknesses in the regular, internet-wide system to damage sites and services. That's where Premium DNS comes in.

Premium DNS has advanced protection and services from things like DDoS attacks and will give you complete control of your DNS Records. Our technology is scaled across a reliable and secure cloud service utilising multiple locations to ensure your DNS hosting is the fastest possible. It will make sure that people can find your site quickly and reliably. Premium DNS is recommended for all businesses and serious domain management. It can be added to any existing domain name anytime within your Account Manager.

This guide will show you how to get started and enjoy all your Premium DNS benefits.

In order for Premium DNS to work, your name servers must be set as follows:

  • ns1.dnspackage.com
  • ns2.dnspackage.com
