  • DNS stands for “Domain Name System” and it’s a backbone technology that makes the world wide web possible. 
  • At the most basic level DNS provides a key/value lookup from a domain name (e.g., google.com) to an IP address (e.g., 85.129.83.120), which is required in order for your computer to route a request to the appropriate server. 
  • Analogizing to phone numbers, the difference between a domain name and IP address is the difference between “call John Doe” and “call 201-867–5309.” Just like you needed a phone book in the old days, you need DNS to look up the IP address for a domain.

Engineering software is about designing, writing, testing, and maintaining computer programs that solve the problem for many users in different environments, machines and at different time zones.
