What is DNS anyway? It’s often said that without DNS the world would stop.

Do you know precisely what all those records do?

Do you rely upon others to “setup the domain”?

Let’s discover what we need to know when it comes to “putting it live”. Norm Douglas spent a number of years as a network admin… in the days before “virtual hosts”.

I’ve always had a love of precisely how the internet works and the intricacies of it. We’ll spend 45 minutes or so diving into precisely how you can make sure you know whats wrong if and when things go wrong and how to fix them, plus how to get the site live all by yourself. Also I’ll show you how I use my domain registrar, CloudFlare and my server/host separately to give me the best chance of avoiding disaster.

Free beer and pizza will be provided by our sponsor.

This event will be livestreamed to Facebook - please join us!
