DNS means Domain Name System, is the internet’s protocol that helps to convert human alphabetical names into numerical addresses that are understandable by computers.
This means that every time you input a domain name to find some resources or information on the internet, its is converted into its corresponding IP Address.
The Domain Name System also serves a core function of assigning varying translations to different users for a common domain name. This is very crucial especially to distributed internet services which include cloud services.
DNS process takes place within a split second and the computer is readily connected to its destination server. Most of the sites have their servers that do their DNS.
If in case a DNS server is not able to translate the domain name, it will readily ask another which continues until the corresponding IP address is found.
The DNS system is indispensable to the functioning of the internet.
