Connect your domain to your 12handz website

 

You must own a domain in order to connect it. If you don't own one, you can get one from 12handz or purchase one at any domain registrar.

What is a DNS Record?

DNS is simply a database that links meaningful names (known as hostnames), such as http://www.microsoft.com, to a specific IP address, such as 192.168.124.1. Simply linking addresses to names is just the beginning, though, because DNS has many more features in addition to host-name-to-address mapping. Read more...
