This is a simple name resolution test that will list DNS records for a domain in order of priority. If you want to do DNS lookups and changes to records should occur immediately, you need to make sure that you have the correct DNS records for the domain. You can use the DNS Lookup tool to see if you have all of the DNS Records you need for your domain. You can specify an IP address for your DNS lookup tool by giving it a name (e.g. www.amazon.com). The default behavior is to return the IP address of the server that answers your request for a given name.
After a lot of hard work and a few tweaks, you've gotten your website running in the cloud. You now need a fast, reliable, and easy-to-use DNS service that will get you set up quickly and stay with you for the long run. Do a quick DNS propagation lookup for any hostname to see if the DNS records have been propagated across all DNS servers. If the results show that they are not propagated, you need to determine why.
You can view DNS propagation information for the top level domains (TLDs) of the root zone by viewing the Whois information available for the relevant TLD's DNS records.
A - domain name server (DNS) records, which is commonly used to point a domain to an IP address.
CNAME records are also known as alias names. They point to other DNS records. Sometimes they're used for subdomains, like www.
MX - Mail Exchanger records are used to help you configure email servers, their priority, and whether they’re able to handle the volume of emails you expect your website to generate.
A name server is a computer that serves as a gateway for sending queries to a Domain Name System (DNS).
TXT - TXT Records are commonly used for configuration settings such as SPF and DKIM records.
Additional types that can be checked which are usually used in more advanced configurations include: AAAA, CAA, PTR, SOA and SRV.
Suppose that you requested to open the URL https://abc.com in your web browser’s bar.
The web browser looks for the requested domain in its cache first. If the domain name isn't found in the cache, it sends out a request for it. To complete this request, the DNS server must first know your domain's Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN). If the domain isn't there, it sends a request to the Name Resolving server to find it.
The Name Resolving Server (NRS) checks its cache in response to that request. The Domain Server will determine if the domain's IP address can be found and then make the necessary request to the Root Server to verify its identity.
The Root Server only contains the server's IP address, which can be resolved to a country by using a WHOIS query, with DNS information and domain name related data, like the last modification date and the number of registered names in the domain. It redirects the Name Resolving Server to the authoritative server for the.com domain. This includes the IP address of the authoritative DNS Server.
A DNS server resolves host names to IP addresses. The authoritative servers for requested URLs are provided by the DNS (Domain Name System) server. The DNS server also provides the IP address for requested URLs to the TLD (top-level domain) server.
A Name Resolver is responsible for storing information about domain names in its cache so the domain name requests can be resolved quickly by requesting a record from a DNS server instead of making multiple requests to all DNS servers at the same time.
As the client’s computer builds the connection with the authoritative server for the requested content and caches the IP address’s information in its browser for future use, the web server can redirect the request to the next cached server, which then sends back the requested content.
DNS is used by web browsers to get information about the hostname (name) of a website. You can use it to diagnose problems with a domain name’s server(s). When you're looking for a domain name, the tool will help you if you're having problems finding one that works.
With this tool you can find out all the DNS host names and ip addresses for your domain.
You'll want to enter the domain name of the site you want to use for ecommerce. Then, click on "submit" that you can use that domain name for all the sites you create.
