DNS And NameServers


 

When the internet was created, there were very few users or websites online. Instead of navigating to a text web address like we do today, users entered the IP address of the server that had the content they wanted.

 

DNS

As the internet has grown, millions of websites have been created, making it far too difficult to remember specific addresses for the websites we use every day. DNS was the solution created to solve this problem.

 

Name Servers

DNS uses specific servers called name servers to turn the text name of a website, like www.webair.com into an IP address, in this case 209.200.29.36. In this way, name servers are like 411 Information for websites. If you don’t know the specific address of a website’s server, you simply type in the websites name and the name server will look it up and connect you.
