DNS Server

The term Domain Name System (DNS for short) refers to a central service in an IP-based network such as a computer. When the URL is entered in the browser, the request is forwarded to the corresponding IP address, the server of the website operator, so that the user can call up the corresponding page. Therefore, the system works like a phone book, providing a directory of names that correspond to specific numbers (IP addresses). Since the system mostly runs in the background, many users are not directly aware of this.
