But what is DNS and why is it important?
DNS stands for Domain Name System, and it is the system that maps domain names (such as example.com) to IP addresses (such as 192.0.2.1). When you enter a domain name into your web browser, the DNS system is responsible for translating that domain name into the corresponding IP address so your computer can connect to the correct website.
DNS is important because it allows us to use easy-to-remember domain names rather than having to remember long strings of numbers (IP addresses) to access websites. It also allows for the flexibility to change the IP address associated with a domain name without having to update every single device that accesses the website.
Using our DNS Lookup tool is simple: just enter the domain you want to look up and hit the “Look up DNS records” button. Our tool will then fetch the records from the DNS server and display them in an easy-to-read table. If no records are found for a particular record type, we’ll let you know so you can keep looking.
