What Is A DNS Server?


A Domain Name System is a group of servers [→] that converts a domain name [→] into an IP Address [→].

When you type a domain name into your browser, this needs to be converted into an IP address. This is a string of numbers or alphanumerics used to locate a server over the internet. This server could be hosting the website you are trying to access.

In simplest terms, DNS servers are the Google Maps [↗] for finding webpages on the internet highway.
