Name Servers and DNS Management


Name  Servers
Your host will provide designated Name Servers for your hosting account. The function of the Name Server is to  translate queries against your domain name to IP addresses and as such they act as a directory that is responsible for routing traffic for your domain.

Example: If you are hosting your domain via WSM you'll want to use cloudwebx-dns1.webcontrolcenter.com and cloudwebx-dns2.webcontrolcenter.com



DNS Management


The DNS Management feature provides you with an interface through WSM where you are able to forward the domain to another domain, a  different IP Address, or just point to a temporary page (known as Parking), and more. These records are also known as sub-domains. This feature would commonly be used by customers who are not hosting their domain via WSM. See Sample DNS Management Tool Records.
