DOMAIN NAME SYSTEM (DNS)


DOMAIN NAME SYSTEM (DNS): -


DNS is an Internet service that converts Domain names into IP addresses.  

The Domain Name System (DNS) service is used because a person can easily remember the domain name (eg- electricalgurus.in) while the internet is based on the IP address.  Through DNS server we can connect to that website by typing the name of any website in the browser as we wish, whereas we do not need to type the IP address (eg: -120.23.149.50).  

If one DNS server cannot translate the domain name, the process continues to translate the domain name from another DNS server until the domain name is translated.  

DNS was proposed in 1983 by Paul Mockapetris and Jon Postel. 

To understand DNS well, we also have to understand domain name and IPADDRESS.
