What is DNS and how to set up Direct DNS Pro or Direct DNS Basic?The Domain Name System (DNS) allows you to host your own web server and mail server for your domain name. Using a DNS service, such as Directnic's Direct DNS service, and a web server on your own computer, you can set www.yourdomain.com to be hosted on your computer, instead of using a commercial or free hosting service. Check out our free Direct DNS Basic product or our Direct DNS Pro product to see which one suits your needs.
