If you’ve ever used the Internet, it’s a good bet that you’ve used the Domain Name System (DNS) even without realizing it. It’s like a phonebook of the Internet.
DNS translates domain names you type in your search bar (e.g. google.com, youtube.com, facebook.com) to IP addresses so browsers can load Internet resources.
There is a nice (and fun) comics to learn about “How DNS works” by DNSimple.
