How to Update DNS Records - DNS Management

What is DNS?

Domain Name System, or DNS, converts domain names into numbers called IP addresses. A number, an IP address, identifies every website; computers read that. One of the IP addresses for Google is 172.217.14.228. When web browsers look for Google, they are looking for 172.217.14.228, which they find in the Google Name Server databases. DNS forms the backbone of the internet, the authority on where every website is located. Also, see DNS Records Explained.
