DNS, and How it can help you…

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a system which distributed naming system for computers, web services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It links various information with domain names, allocate to each of the joining entities. It translates domain names significant to humans into the numerical identifiers connected with networking peripheral for the purpose of locating and addressing these devices worldwide. Generally it is a phonebook of any mobile phone which gives the information about a number.

Types of DNS Servers

Three types of name servers:

  • Primary – Locally stored files exist on the name server data base.
  • Secondary – Gets data called a zone transfer from another server that is the zone authority.
  • Caching – Only caches name server information and does not contain its own files.

If you got error that your site is ok but it not open on your browser then it may cause for your DNS Server not found the site in his database.  For example you type www.solutiononline.co.in in your browser but it not opened and your network is ok. It may cause of the browser send the request to your DNS server you are connected but the server database is find which server (IP address) solutiononline is located.

But the problem is if your DNS server not found any address which you actually look for? Then it is comes to public DNS Server. It also likes other DNS server but having capacity to search address to other DNS server also. For above example, in this case browser again search a new public DNS server for your website IP address in not found the go for another DNS server and so on and at the last if found then it connected your computer and your website.

Advantages of Public DNS Server in your computer.

As web pages become more multifaceted, more equation, formula and critical form, referencing resources from several domains, DNS lookups can become an important blockage in the browsing experience. Whenever a client needs to query a DNS resolver over the network, as result we get more speed data transfer over the communication process. Time consuming for opening a website is less and we get more free traffic in communication process.
