Yes I agree that it is confusing for non-tech folks. I had to help friends and family many times when DNS got involved.

Yeah. For devs it's not so bad, but I'm just not sure why it can't be abstracted away more easily for most folks. It's a shame about the web that so many parts of getting online independently are still so technical and such a maintenance burden.

I'm not saying there are easy answers... It's a fundamental problem people keep trying to solve over and over and over again.... But DNS seems like it could be abstracted a little better than it is.
