You know without the use of DNS you may not be able to enjoy some very basic features of Internet. DNS servers is just like a Phone book but with many more feature. You may have hundreds of phone numbers that you use in your everyday life. Most probably you will save your number that is important to you. Now if I say you to remember those hundreds of numbers than it can be difficult for you to remember all those numbers and time consuming. If you don't know what DNS is than you may be wondering how your phonebook is related to DNS servers. Actually all the web pages and websites are hosted in a server which has a fixed/static IP address. Without the use of DNS in Internet you will need to browse sites by typing it's IP address. It is little difficult to remember the IP address of all your favorite sites. Now the DNS (Domain Name System) comes into use. Actually it provides those Static IP address a name (host name) that is easy to remember. When you type a web address or a website name than your browser sends this information to the DNS system and than the DNS system looks for the IP address that is connected to the host (website) that you type in your URL bar. If first DNS system doesn't find the IP address connected to the site you typed than it sends this information to another DNS system. It keeps going own until the DNS System finds an IP address connected to the host name (web address) you typed in your browsers URL address bar. Now you have understand the importance of DNS address in everyday Internet related activities. See the image given below to quickly see how DNS server works.
