Why monitor your DNS records?

Your DNS records are the crucial behind-the-scenes component nobody notices, until it's broken. It is what translates your domain name (what we humans understand) to an IP address (what computers understand).

As long as that translation works, everyone's happy. But if it's broken, it is crucial to know about it quickly and take action.
