What is a Domain Name Server?

Domain Name System is system that helps computers understand domain names, it essentially changes the domain name to an IP Address. Every Domain name has a list of Name Servers that are authorized to host its DNS Records. Name servers are usually a server but can be a program that runs a name-service protocol. Name servers hold a file named Zone File, this Zone File contains records for the domain such as the A record and MX Record. If you need to set up an A record, you can contact us, or, your provider and they will send it to you. It is usually set as default once you register a domain. MX Records are a bit different to the other records as they are tied to the mail server. You have priority numbers which provide information to the mail server that should be used first to. You can have multiple entries with different priorities, if the first priority doesn't work it will go the next one and so on.

​​What are the DNS Records or Settings?

  • A records
An A record allows DNS Servers to have the IP Address tied to your domain name.
  • CNAME Records
A CNAME record can map the web address www.yourdomainname.com to the actual web site for the domain example.com.
  • TXT Recrods
You can use TXT records for various purposes. Most email providers such as Microsoft Office or Google use them to verify domain ownership and to ensure email security.
  • SPF Records
Purpose of an SPF Record is to prevent spammers from sending messages with forged email addresses from your domain.
  • MX Records
MX records are used to tell the world which mail servers accept incoming mail for your domain and where emails sent to your domain should be routed to.


Important notice

The option of changing DNS zones is only available for clients using cPanel. If you log in and you do not have the option to change your DNS zones under the "Edit DNS zones" function, this means that the server you're located on is currently undergoing maintenance. In this case please email us your records and we will change them for you. You can send your records to support@webworld.ie

How do I change them?

You can log into your cPanel Hosting Plan to change the DNS under the "Domains" Section.

You can manage your A record, CNAME Record, MX Record and TXT Recrod from here.

​After clicking into the Zone Editor, you will see a list of domains that are tied to your Hosting Plan. You can click manage with the spanner icon, and it will bring you into a menu with all the records tied to the domain you selected. From the list you can delete and edit these records, you can also add records by clicking the blue button with the plus sign saying "Add Record".

Regarding SPF Records and MX Record you have to navigate to the "EMAIL" Section and go into "Authentication". From here on you can add additional MX Records and SPF Records to the empty text box on the side and after you are done you can press "Add" which adds automatically the MX or the SPF record.

To find more about DNS Propagation which is the period of time it takes for a domain's Name Servers to update you can check out our other blog http://blog.webworld.ie/weblog/dns-propagation-guide, it also goes through how to check if your DNS Settings have been updated.

If you encounter any problems or you are unsure on how to proceed with changing your records please do not hesitate to email us as we will always be glad to help you.

<![CDATA[DNS Propagation Guide]]>Wed, 01 Apr 2020 10:20:50 GMThttp://blog.webworld.ie/weblog/dns-propagation-guideDNS Propagation - Explained
In this guide I will help you go through some information about DNS Propagation, also known more commonly as updating DNS Records.

This guide will be split into 4 segments:

1. What is DNS Propagation?
2. Why does it take long?
3. Are their other ways to pass DNS Propagation?
4. How do I check if DNS Propagation has been updated?

What is DNS Propagation?

DNS Propagation is the process of the period of time it takes for a domain's Name Servers to uipdate, this process usually takes 24-48 hours to complete before changing efffect. It can also be referred to ISP (Internet Service Provider) nodes. These nodes have to update all over the world with the new Nameservers you've set your domain to.

​These nodes are all over the world and they all need to be updated individualy, that is why it takes at least 24 hours to update.

Also, DNS caches can still show the old website for different people viewing it, it all depends on their location on earth.

Why does it take so long?

Let's say you are currently living in Dublin, Ireland. You updated your name servers for a domain that's hosted in Santa Monica, USA.

When anyone goes into the browser, and wishes to look up your website, they have to go through different servers in order to get to the server your website is stored at. People think that when you type in "Ilovetacotuesdayys.com", the connection is instantly established between Dublin, Ireland and Santa Monica, USA. That is incorrect as it has to travel through many different connections, the path may vary each time.

This is the usual path:

Your browser -> Your computer -> Your Router -> Internet Provider -> Public DNS -> Domain Registrar -> DNS assigned to the domain you're looking up -> Server on which the files are stored.


Are there other ways to pass DNS Propagation?

You can point the domain to the destined IP address by changing the A record. You also have to set TLL to a minimal amount. When the record has been updated you can change the nameservers for your domain.

This will result in your domain being resolved from your previous host from the places where the propagation has not been completed yet and to a new one from the places where it has already been completed. IN this way you will avoid downtime as both hosts will not show you your new updated website.

How do I check if DNS Propagation has been completed?

There really isn't a way to tell when DNS records have been updated, there is websites that you can use to check but it all depends on your location in the world, your ISP and TTL applied to the domain. I have attached below a trustworthy DNS Checker that we sometimes use ourselves.

DNS Checkers work in a way that they provide a free check against any DNS Record in the world, they summarise the results they get and you receive it.

DNS Checker :
There is also another way of checking if DNS Propagation for yourself, for some people it might not be that simple to follow but I will try my best to explain it in this simple step by step. It consists of typing in commands into the command control panel.

After typing in any of the commands below, you can tell if the propagation has been complete for you if the result of these commands is the new IP Address. If it is not the new IP Address, that means DNS Propagation hasn't been complete for you.

1. Click on the Start button and search "CMD" into your search bar and click onto the application.
2. After clicking into it, please type the following command; ns.lookup (your domain.ie) and hit enter.
3. Or you could typ in Ping (your domain.ie) and hit enter
4. Or another option is to type in traceroute -I -e (your domain.ie)

Trace (also known as Traceroute or TRACERT in Windows) is a utility that traces a the route that IP (Internet Protocol) packets take from your computer to an internet host, showing how many hops the packet requires to reach the host and how long it takes to reach each router. If you're visiting a Web site and pages are appearing slowly, you can use traceroute to figure out where the longest delays are occurring.

Please remember put just a tracert command in Windows


That's been it, I hope I have explained the basics of DNS Propagation or most commonly called as updating DNS records.

If you ever do need your DNS records updated please pop us in an email to support@webworld.ie and we will change them for you!

<![CDATA[Email Only Hosting]]>Fri, 14 Feb 2020 15:21:13 GMThttp://blog.webworld.ie/weblog/email-only-hosting

Emails accounts for free?

A lot of businesses invest in a fancy website, but their emails are kept with gmail or an unpopular email provider.  What would happen if you had to pay all of a sudden for your email account(s)? In this case, why not use the email which is free with your Hosting Plan!
 
Hosting spaces includes many excellent solutions for individuals and businesses. You can use email addresses like  “username@yourdomainname.com”, they will look much more professional than the personal email—and the best part is, it’s free!
 
Do you own a hosting plan already? You can open email accounts for your personal use and create many new emails accounts under our hosting plans. You can use your hosting space, point all emails traffic onto our servers, and keep all services together.  With our hosting package, we can offer you email space for more than 1 domain name, it means that you can store few different addresses with a few different extensions, for example: mary@onedomainname.ieinfo@anotherdomainname.com, support@yourdepartament.net

10 GB? How much is that?

A plain text email usually takes up no more than 0.1 megabytes of storage. So you could store at least 100’000 plain text emails (10GB). Now, emails also allow you to send images and/or other files, which most providers limit to 10 megabytes in total. Assuming you receive those all the time, you could store about 1000 emails.

10GB for 2.10 /month?


If you don’t need a website, but you would like a personalised email address (email@yourdomain.com) then our Email only Hosting Plans are perfect for you! We can open a new account for all users and offer 10 GB of storage for 50 user accounts for €2.10 per month!

<![CDATA[POP,  IMAP,  and SMTP settings for Outlook.com]]>Wed, 11 Dec 2019 14:25:09 GMThttp://blog.webworld.ie/weblog/pop-imap-and-smtp-settings-for-outlookcom6355271
When you first access an email account through a desktop most of the customers would use and email application just like “Outlook” or “Thunderbird”. In order for you to use your email with these applications you need to set it up. With this guide, I will show you step by step how to set it up for you.

VERY IMPORTANT: THIS ONLY APPLIES TO CUSTOMERS ON CPANEL

Before proceeding and selecting your email application please read the following instructions on how to setup an email account via cPanel as it is very important!

Setting up Email in cPanel

1.) Please log into your client area.
​2.) At the top of the client area, you should have a blue bar running across it, click into           “Services” -> “My Services” 
3.) Click into your designated Hosting Plan.
4.) Click into cPanel (Top-left hand corner).
5.)Go to Email Accounts (Click the email accounts icon in the icon menu).

At this stage you should see your email accounts, unless you have no email accounts then you can create one from there on. When you find the email account you wish to connect to the email app, click “Connect Devices”, followed by “Set Up Mail Client”. This should bring you into a page with “Mail Client Manual Settings”. You should have two boxes, one in Blue and the other one in Orange. The blue one should have the header “Secure SSL/TLS Settings (Recommended)”. For the set up we will be using the details in this box.

Notes:
  • IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
  • POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
  • Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.
  • We recommend using POP3 over SSL/TLS or IMAP over SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.

An example:
​Microsoft Outlook® 2019 (PC), Microsoft Outlook® 2016 (PC), Microsoft Outlook® 2010 (PC)
POP, IMAP, and SMTP settings for Outlook.com (2010)
POP, IMAP, and SMTP settings for Outlook.com (2016)
POP, IMAP, and SMTP settings for Outlook.com (2019)

How to start

1/ Please log into your client area.
2/ At the top of the client area, where the blue bar runs across, click into “Services” -> “My Services” 
3/ Click into your designated Hosting Plan.

Some important notes before we begin 

  • IMAP email access coordinates between the server and your mail application. Messages that have been read/deleted/replied to will show up as such, both on the server and in the mail application.
​​
  • POP3 does not coordinate with the server. Messages marked as read/deleted/replied to in the mail application will not show up as such on the server. This means that future mail downloads with POP3 will show all messages as unread.
  • Outgoing mail is sent using SMTP.

  • We recommend using POP3 over SSL/TLS or IMAP over SSL/TLS since they provide increased security for your interactions with the remote mail server.

Important:  This only applies to customers hosted on cPanel.

Secure or Not Secure?

Secure SSL/TLS settings are recommended, but if the verification with Outlook isn’t successful, please use the not recommended settings.

How Do I Enable SMTP Authentication?

An example: Microsoft Outlook® 2016 (PC)
1. From the “File” menu, choose “Account Settings”, click once and then click onto “Server Settings”.
2. Click “Outgoing mail” in blue font and a menu should appear.
3. Make sure that “My outgoing (SMTP) server requires authentication” box is ticked like in the picture above. Also be sure that the “Server” is the same as the one that was given to you in the Blue box at the beginning of this tutorial, you can find this box in cPanel as mentioned previously. Make sure that the “Port” is also the same as the one in the Blue box.
