The DNS resolution happens daily, and we don’t even notice it. So let’s explain a little bit more about it.
DNS resolution explained.
The process of DNS resolution is triggered by typing a domain name into the browser. Thanks to it, the domain names are quickly and easily translated to IP addresses.
A particular domain name could have more than one IP address, for instance, one IPv4 address and one IPv6 address. Then the DNS resolution is going to proceed for both of them. However, in order to connect with the domain, we are going to need only one of these addresses.
The quick way for translating domain names become a necessity long ago. Back in the day, every existent IP address was saved in a Host file that was updated manually. But, as you know, the number of devices has increased tremendously, until, at some point, it was not effective anymore to search for IP addresses that way.
The Domain Name System (DNS) was launched, and the search and the Internet became a lot easier. The user only has to type the domain name, and it simply reaches the website. It is something we don’t even understand how quickly happens.
