DNS Settings are the records used to determine the routing of internet traffic for your domain name. For example, you may set up a ‘www’ record to send traffic to your website server or hosting provider, and you may set up mail exchange records (MX records) to send traffic to your email provider.
Netistrar provides a FREE DNS service without a commercial Service Level Agreement. It is in our interest to maintain a reliable DNS service, and in the background we use third-party providers such as Cloudflare to maintain business continuity. For mission-critical services we recommend that you use your own commercial DNS provider (note we have our own Commercial DNS offerings in the pipeline). Note, we do not enable other Cloudflare services, such as Application firewalls, caching, etc. To enable those services you can register your own Cloudflare account, and set your own Nameservers to those provided by Cloudflare.
Note: for any services that you purchase through Netistrar, such as G Suite and email services, we offer to make this job easier for you by automatically setting up DNS records to resolve these services for you.
If you are either transferring a Domain Name to Netistrar from another provider, or transferring your DNS services to Netistrar, we will attempt to detect any published DNS records to use as a starting point. Please review these records before saving them for use in production.
