When you create a website, it's like building a house. You need a piece of land to build your house, and your website needs a place to live too. That's where a domain comes in - it's like the address of your website. But how do you connect your website to your domain? That's where DNS settings come in.

Connecting via DNS method takes between 5 and couple of hours in general, and depends how fast your domain provider updates the new seetings you add. That i much faster than transferring a domain which can take up to 7 days.

DNS stands for Domain Name System, and it's like a phone book for the internet. It's a way of translating human-friendly domain names (like www.yourwebsite.com) into computer-friendly IP addresses (like 123.456.789.0) that your web browser can understand.

When you add a specific A-record to your DNS settings, you're telling your domain registrar (like Godaddy or Namecheap) that when someone types in your domain name, they should be directed to a specific IP address. In this case, the IP address of your website provider, Vsble.

This means that when someone types in your domain name, they will be automatically directed to your website, which is hosted by Vsble.

Here is a list of links to tutorials on how to edit DNS records for various domain providers:

By following these tutorials, you'll be able to connect your website to your domain using DNS settings in no time!
