Understanding how DNS works is an important part of learning how to host websites on your own servers. This guide by DigitalOcean is a thorough introduction to DNS terminology, components, and concepts.
It’s important to note that SpinupWP does not manage the DNS for your domains. Therefore, you should have a good understanding of how to manage the DNS for your domains before using SpinupWP. The app will let you know when you should add specific DNS records, and what the values should be, but the rest is up to you.
If you’re looking for some good DNS providers, here are some we use regularly and would recommend:
- Cloudflare DNS (free)
- Amazon Route 53 (very low cost)
