What is MyDNS Manager
MyDNS Manager is a web-based control panel and management tool for the MyDNS software. MyDNS is an open-source DNS server that allows you to manage and configure DNS (Domain Name System) records for your domain names.
With MyDNS Manager, you can easily manage your DNS zones, add or modify DNS records, set up domain aliases, configure DNS settings, and perform other DNS management tasks. It provides a user-friendly interface that allows you to interact with your DNS server and make changes to your domain’s DNS configuration.
Some key features of MyDNS Manager may include:
1. Zone Management: You can create and manage DNS zones for your domain names. This includes adding, editing, and deleting DNS records such as A, CNAME, MX, TXT, and other record types.
2. DNS Record Management: You can add, modify, or delete individual DNS records within a zone. This allows you to control the mapping of domain names to IP addresses, configure mail server settings, set up subdomains, and manage other DNS-related configurations.
3. Zone Transfers: MyDNS Manager may provide options to configure zone transfers, allowing you to replicate your DNS zone data to secondary DNS servers for redundancy and fault tolerance.
4. User Management: You can create and manage user accounts with different levels of access and permissions. This allows you to delegate DNS management tasks to specific users or teams.
5. Logging and Reporting: MyDNS Manager may offer logging and reporting features to track DNS queries, monitor DNS server performance, and generate reports on DNS activity.
MyDNS Manager simplifies the process of managing DNS records and configurations, making it easier for administrators and domain owners to handle DNS-related tasks without directly accessing the command line or editing zone files manually.
What is DNS?
The Domain Name System (DNS) is the phonebook of the Internet. Humans access information online through domain names, like nytimes.com or espn.com. Web browsers interact through Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. DNS translates domain names to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources.
Each device connected to the Internet has a unique IP address which other machines use to find the device. DNS servers eliminate the need for humans to memorize IP addresses such as 192.168.1.1 (in IPv4)
How does DNS work?
The process of DNS resolution involves converting a hostname (such as www.example.com) into a computer-friendly IP address (such as 192.168.1.1). An IP address is given to each device on the Internet, and that address is necessary to find the appropriate Internet device – like a street address is used to find a particular home. When a user wants to load a webpage, a translation must occur between what a user types into their web browser (example.com) and the machine-friendly address necessary to locate the example.com webpage.
In order to understand the process behind the DNS resolution, it’s important to learn about the different hardware components a DNS query must pass between. For the web browser, the DNS lookup occurs “ behind the scenes” and requires no interaction from the user’s computer apart from the initial request.
