From our previous article you would have known about Domain Name System (DNS). It is a naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet. It turns a user-friendly domain name like “slashsquare.org” into an Internet Protocol (IP) address like 30.67.327.78. Computers use this kind of address to identify each other on the network.
