What is DNS?

DNS, or Domain Name System, is like a phonebook for the internet. When you type a website address like www.example.com into your browser, DNS is what helps your browser find the website. It does this by turning the website name that people can read into a numerical IP address that computers use to identify each other on the internet.

For example, just as you might look up a person’s name in a phonebook to find their phone number, your computer uses DNS to look up a website’s name to find its corresponding IP address. This process is called DNS resolution. Once your computer knows the IP address, it can connect to the website’s server and load the page you want to see.
