How DNS Works?
DNS is a way to match words/names (for example yourdomain.com) to numbers / IP addresses. The humans can’t remember the IP () addresses, so we use words i-e abc.com, google.com, etc.
When you query a domain name i-e google.com into your browser, your browser transmits a ping over the internet to find the domain name google.com. That query is to match the domain name with an IP address. When the match is found, the browser renders requested domain name or web page. There is no internet without DNS servers. A distributed database which holds the client-server model maintains the domain name system.
A nameserver is a kind of web server / DSN server with DNS software installed. It is a designated server managed by a web host for managing the domain names. There is another type of name servers that are called custom name servers. With custom name servers you can run your name server to get the connection to DNS.
The response and query protocol that extracts information from the database against a domain name. The content of the whois database includes registrar information, email address, registration and expiration dates, IP address, name servers, etc. WHOIS is used for many purposes:
– To get the identity, contact information and location of the registrant
– To verify the identity of a business
– To find the email address of the registrant mostly used by law enforcement agents.
