DNS stands for Domain Name Service and/or Domain Name Servers. The Domain Name Service (DNS) can be thought of much like a phone book. If you need to call someone on their phone but only have their name, you can always check the phone book for their number. The same thing happens on the Internet, although, it all happens in the background.
Like a person’s name, it’s easier to remember a domain name like rocketspark.com as opposed to their online internet address (IP), the IP address is where all the files are located that make up a website. So when you type in rocketspark.com, it checks the directory to find the (IP) address of where all the files are stored before making the connection to retrieve and display the website.
Rocketspark has different domain settings for each of its NZ, AU and UK servers.
