🤓  What List of free online courses  is DNS? ✅

Each device that connects to a network or the internet is identified by its IP address and its host name or domain name respectively. So you do not need to know or remember the IP address of a site, as long as you know its domain .

DNS is the service that assigns each domain name to the IP of the web server that hosts the website. So when you type a domain in your Browser and press ENTER, then the DNS settings send to your computer the IP of the server to which it will search this website. Then your Navigator (Brower: Internet Explorer, Firefox etc) sends the request to the server to open the page you requested.

This information (IP address of the site and files that make up the website) is stored for a short time in the memory of your PC and network, so that if you visit the same website again, they will be found in the memory, which is faster process.

They are usually stored for a day or two and when this time has elapsed then DNS will be used again to find the IP.

Respectively, the Internet Connection Providers (ISP’s: Otenet, Forthnet, HOL etc.), store on their servers the temporary versions of the web pages that have already been opened through their network, in order to serve you faster (and to save traffic).
