Affordable Website Design
So far in our series of Affordable Website Design - in Part 1 we talked about getting a 'domain name' and then in Part 2 we discussed how this domain is 'pointed' to the machine that is 'hosting' the website. Now lets discuss the next important but often overlooked part of your website - the email accounts.
In part one of pieces of a website series we discussed the need to purchase a domain name and then pointing this domain to the machine that is 'hosting' your website.

The way Domain Name Server (DNS) works is something like this.
1) You as the owner of the domain name have to say which "Name Server" has the correct match of your domain name to a specific ip address.
