Domain names are an integral part of the DNS system - the whole system exists to facilitate their usage. And in order for a domain name to be a functional part of the DNS system, it must rely on a variety of DNS settings, some of them vital for the domain's online availability and some that, while being optional, can provide additional functionality and give the domain owner more possibilities.

DNS settings refer to certain records within the Domain Name System that allow users to access their websites and emails through their unique domain names. The DNS settings, also popular as DNS records, are related to both the online resolution of websites and website-related services (email and FTP), and the possibility to make various DNS adjustments through a specific DNS Management interface. Usually, a change in the DNS settings needs time to propagate to all root DNS servers and frequent changes can increase this propagation time, which is why it's recommended to change your domain's DNS settings only if you are sure what you are doing.
DNS Settings types
There are various types of DNS settings that are responsible for managing different sides of a domain name's resolution online. A records (A for 'address') are used to translate host names to IP addresses; NS records (NS for Name Server) designate the name servers that store information for a certain domain; MX Records (MX for Mail Exchange) define the mail delivery location for a domain; CNAME Records (CNAME for 'Canonical Name') are used to create additional host names for hosts in a domain, etc. There are also several other records, like TXT records, which can give additional information for the specific domain and assist in enabling SPF protection.
Manage DNS Settings with NTC Hosting
Through the DNS management interface in NTC Hosting's Web HostingControl Panel, you can customize the DNS settings for each domain name registered with the company or transferred over from another registrar. Along with the standard DNS settings specified above, users can also apply less popular DNS records such as AAAA, SRV or TXT records.
