What is the DNS (Domain Name System)?

DNS is the central part of the internet that provides a way to match names ( a destination website) to numbers (the address for the website).

The domain name system is the phonebook of the internet to access information online through domain names, for ex: klcweb.com. Web browsers interact through IP (internet protocol) addresses. DNS translates domain names to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources.

Each device connected to the internet has a unique IP address that other machines use to find the device. DNS servers eliminate the need for humans to memories IP addresses such as (in ipv4).

When a user wants to load a webpage, a translation must occur between what a user types into their web browser (klcweb.com) and the machine-friendly address necessary to locate the klcweb.blogspot.com webpage.

In order to understand the process behind the DNS resolution, it’s important to learn about the different hardware components a DNS query must pass between.

For the web browser, the DNS lookup occurs “ behind the scenes” and requires no interaction from the user’s computer apart from the initial request.
