Say, for instance, that you own a bakery called “Bob’s Cake Factory” in a popular shopping center. Business is going well until a new store opens up right next to yours called, “Bob’s Cakes.” It wouldn’t be an ideal situation for you, or any other business owner, right?

How the Domain Name System Works

Verisign - DNS

This article was provided by Versign

 

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a central part of the Internet which, simply put, provides a way to find resources online.
