DNS Hosting

DNS stands for Domain Name System, which is a system of servers that provides the infrastructure which allows browsing of the World Wide Web. This is the infrastructure that takes the human-readable domain names and the numerical IP addresses used by servers and tells them about each other. 

To do this you need DNS Hosting.
