Frequently Asked DNS Questions
What is DNS?
DNS - or domain name system - is a phonebook of every web address on the internet.
The DNS system translates human-readable domain names into IP addresses, which is then used to connect users to the content they’re looking for.
An IP address is a long series of numbers and symbols that only a computer can remember. Since we’re humans, we use readable language to visit a URL (ex: nexcess.net). DNS links the computer version of your domain (IP address) to the readable URL in your browser bar.
