Login as the domain owner and select active domains click on the appropriate domain name on the lower right side of the screen will be the dns servers. Click edit DNS servers and make the desired changes. scroll all the way to the bottom and click ...

Latency Benefits? Short Answer: Minuscule benefit, if you have big enough TTL. Long Answer: To understand it, you need to understand how DNS works and terms like DNS caching, TTL (time to live). On very basic level, DNS converts domain name to an IP address. While setting A-record (or other records), we also set TTL (time to live) which is the ...

It may depend on your registrar, but in my case, I set up what is called 'child name nameservers' in one registrar and 'registry hosts' in another, but they both do the same thing, that is where you create something like ns1.yourdomain.com, ns2.yourdomain.com as nameserver values. Then in WHM go to Home ┬╗Server Configuration ┬╗Basic cPanel & WHM Setup ...

Solution I created CNAME dns records as follows: CNAME | application-1 | my-server.cloudapp.azure.com CNAME | application-2 | my-server.cloudapp.azure.com CNAME | application-2 | my-server.cloudapp.azure.com Then on the azure vm I run Caddy (a HTTP/2 web server with automatic HTTPS) with the following Caddyfile: application-1.my-server.company.com { ...

As stated by Simon in a comment above: Yes, DNS changes happen more quickly, but not all DNS servers respect the TTL... many override and set their own

Ok so for inbound mail you need to have your MX record set properly in your domain. This record tells anybody who wants to send you email where to send it. As you use WHM to handle your email you need to ultimately get it to point to your cloud server's IP address (IP A) but MX records can only point to domains and not IP addresses so you want to have a ...

Google Mail is pretty good Google mail can add an alternate email address to pick emails. So if 123-reg supports a protocol like POP3 or another Google can read, you can import from another server check 123-reg doc

Propagation times are controlled by the time to live (TTL) that is set on the DNS record. The only way to get DNS changes live faster is to have a shorter TTL specified. GoDaddy may be offering to set a short TTL for you, but there is no reason that a short TTL can't be specified at most DNS hosts. Default TTL values vary widely between DNS hosts. ...

The correct solution is indeed to just provide an A and an AAAA record for the hostname. IPv6 is preferred by clients by default, usually with a Happy Eyeballs implementation. The client device chooses the protocol. You cannot influence that, only provide both addresses.

The short answer is yes. Adding the domain name and IP to your HOSTS file will resolve the domain, locally, to the IP you have entered. When you then visit that domain in your web browser, along with your request to the web server (at that IP address you entered), your browser will send the domain name you have requested. The shared web server will then use ...

Yes - altering a HOSTS file locally to redirect a domain to an IP isn't the same as simply typing in that IP into the browser. The reason why is that in shared hosting, one IP address houses multiple domains. When you type in that IP address of "your" site (which is also the IP of other sites as well), the server can either a) Give an error b/c it doesn't ...

Short answer: a registrar can register their own domains just like anyone else. Longer answer: Behind the domain name system is a network of registry operators; in the case of gTLDs (global top level domains - eg. com, net, org and many, many others) the registry operator is ICANN. Each registrar (GoDaddy, Namecheap etc.) is accredited by the registry ...
