Over my 5 years at LyntonWeb I’ve helped launch hundreds of new website, and that’s not an exaggeration.
When launching a new site, you need to update the DNS to point the domain name to the new server (if there is one; there usually is for us).
Wait, “what is DNS?”, you’re probably asking. DNS, or domain name system, is a naming system for computers, servers, or anything connected to a network. Think of it as a phone book. You have a name (hopefully), but you can’t tell your phone to call Steve Guttenberg and expect to be connected to him, the phone system doesn’t work that way. You need to have Steve Guttenberg’s actual phone number to reach him. By the way, if any of you do, please let me know. I’ve got a great movie idea for him.
