A Beginner’s Guide to Domain Name Servers (DNS) and How Does It Work
Let us recap the topic on “What is a Domain name” which we already explained in this article. So a domain name is a creative and crucial part of any website URL. Usually, domain name hierarchy structure is made up of Top Level Domain (TLD), Secondary Level Domain (SLD), Zero-Level and Third-Level Domain.
However, a domain name is basically the address of your website. When it is represented in a set of four numbers, such as 188.8.131.52, then it is called as “IP Address” which is understood by the computer. This numerical address is a given a domain name for a user to identify, relate to and search the desired website, such as www.google.com.
You understand – www.google.com (Domain name)
Computer Understands – 184.108.40.206 (IP Address)
This is where DNS comes in to play.
A Domain Name Servers, or DNS, translates a domain name to an IP address which a computer can understand. It acts like a phonebook directory to store the relationship between the domain name and IP address. When a user types in a URL on the browser, the address gets fetched from Domain Name Servers and the server displays the requested website on the screen.
A DNS Resolverstarts the sequence of queries that leads to a URL which would be translated into the necessary IP address.
