    They are actually working like a phone book. They’re systems that responsible for translate many domain names into Internet Protocol Addresses (IP Addresses).

    They were invented for the Internet worldwide in 1984. This is very necessary because computers or machines don’t understand the domain names or string, they only know IP addresses, although domain names are very easy for people to remember.

    Hello, friends, A DNS server is a computer server that contains a database of public IP addresses and their associated hostnames, and in most cases, serves to resolve, or translate, those common names to IP addresses as requested.

    Let me make it very simple for you all.

    Imagine that there’s no naming system for us. We all are identified to each other by our ‘Date of Birth’. How many people’s identification (DOB) will you be able to remember? Not much, right?

    Now, let’s come to the reality. We all have a unique name to get recognized. These unique words (name) are way simpler to deal with than the combination of date, month and year (DOB), isn’t it? And this is how we communicate easily and conveniently.

    This is the exact concept used in DNS (Domain Name System).


    Similar, to the above stated example, it would be very difficult for human beings to memorize these public IP addresses while accessing the websites. So, DNS came into existence to make it convenient for us to access websites by the domain names rather than the public IP address.

    The Domain Name System (DNS) underpins the web we use every day. It works transparently in the background, converting human-readable website names into computer-readable numerical IP addresses.
