  • How Does A DNS Server Function

    A DNS server functions as a means for distributed devices to access domain names and browse the internet. Simply put, websites are identified by a set of numbers called IP addresses. IP stands for Internet protocol, and an IP address looks something like this: 135.79.111.112. To keep track, these IP addresses are collected in a database that resides on a series of computers called domain name servers (DNS). When a person accesses a website, the DNS matches the name website with the correct IP address, and then delivers the site content to the browser. Without a DNS system in place, the internet would be difficult to access. The sheer number of websites runs in the 100s of millions. Keeping up with IP addresses would be close to impossible without a DNS.
