What is a VOIP phone system?
VOIP stands for Voice Over Internet Protocol this refers to the standards that facilitate voice-based phone calls using the organizations internet connection rather than using a local telephone company. If we want to get technical interpret this as the VOIP converts voices within conversation into digital signals that then become compressed and sent over the internet to the receiving end of the call. On the receiving end the digital signals are then uncompressed, and the voice can be herd through the phone system being used.
DNS on the other hand is what computers use to turn domain names (i.e., the URL of your website) into an IP address. Every device connected to the internet has its own IP address. We as users pay to secure the Domain name system for our website so that others cannot use the same IP. For example, our business owns wefixit.com.au and wefixit.com and wefix-it.com.au 3 separate Domain Name Systems. All these three DNS however are pointed to our web hosting server that as the name states hosts our websites files.
Why do people choose to use VOIP phone systems?
The best thing about a VOIP Phone system is that it is run through the internet meaning the user does not have to pay a telephone company for service which in turn saves then money on long distance chargers. Realistically the organization using VOIP phone systems only need a solid internet connection (which includes a router and modem) and a SIP compatible desk phone or a VOIP Calling app with an assigned IP. This means companies can cut out the costs of a telephone company bills all together.
As VOIP runs over the internet calls can be easily recorded and data is able to be securely stored within the cloud. This gives businesses the ease of managing their dashboard through an online interface. Meaning the ease of enabling call forwarding, adding new phone numbers, and labeling business numbers.
