What is the difference between Domain Registration and DNS Services?

Domain Registration gives you the right to use a domain name for a given period of time. It allows you to find your DNS servers. DNS Services does the heavy lifting of resolving your site to its IP address. When you type in an address into your web browser, say, www.nettica.com, that request is handled through the Domain Name System (DNS) and is translated into a numerical IP address, which is what your browser uses to connect to the site. Many of the larger domain name registrars do not offer DNS services as they expect you to run your own DNS servers. Many DNS Service providers do not offer Domain Registration. Nettica offers both services in a single easy to use interface.
