DNS (Domain Name System) is a naming system that is used to identify computers, services, and other internet-accessible entities. It’s a protocol for mapping web addresses or URLs to IP addresses. Humans are incapable of remembering all of a website’s numerical addresses. Website URLs were included in the image to make it simple and human-readable. This is when DNS comes in handy. To convert human-readable domain addresses to numerical IPv4 or IPv6 addresses. For example, thegeekpage.com will map to IPv4 address of 126.96.36.199 and IPv6 address of 2606:4700:3108::ac42:2899.
