Every domain name is given a series of numbers known as an IP address — for example, the IP address for www.forinstance.com is 69.152.279.001. It’s this number that your browser uses to locate a website.When you type a domain name into your browser, the DNS (Domain Name Server) looks through a huge database to find the IP address you requested and then directs your browser to the correct website content.
Hosting of your domain name allows people to find your email address and website. The name you have purchased sits on our DNS server (different to a web hosting server) and when anyone in the world is looking for you we direct them where to find your details. The DNS server points to where IP addresses are for your website and e-mail in-boxes, which can be anywhere in the world.
You are not required to have domain name hosting to keep holding onto the name you have purchased (called domain name registration and renewal), but it is a service you will require if you want people to find you on the internet. We at DF IT Solutions offer DNS hosting.
