Domain Name Server(DNS)

What is Domain Name Server(DNS) #

According to MDN Web Docs, Domain Name Servers are like an address book for websites. When you type a web address in your browser, the browser looks at the DNS to find the website’s real address before it can retrieve the website. The browser needs to find out which server the website lives on, so it can send HTTP messages to the right place. This is like looking up the address of a shop so you can access it.
