What is DNS?
DNS stands for Domain name server which converts your IP address into your domain address and vice versa. This is a protocol. This was designed because it is very difficult for a human being to learn the digits of an IP address and think about remembering the IP address of all your favorite sites. That’s why DNS is designed which automatically converts your alphabet worlds into their respective IP address.
