How DNS Works

DNS is a phone book that maps computer names to IP addresses known to be the DNS records.

Your computer asks the DNS server on a local router to perform a DNS lookup.

How DNS Works Image

Recursive DNS Query Type

DNS client reaches out to a server, upstream requests are made and the result is returned. time-to-live (TTL) value determines the duration of the results to be cached.


Iterative DNS Query Type

Without any upstream travel, the DNS server finds the answer itself. If not, a different DNS server is recommended. The process continues till the answer is found.

A refresher on DNS concepts

DNS Recursor

The server finds the cache and responds to the query. Internet Service Providers run the recursor.


DNS Root Server

It’s the base of an entire DNS infrastructure and acts as the authoritative name server such as “.com” and “.net”.


TLD Name Server

Almost just as important as the root server. This is the first one to respond and point the client towards the name server.


Authoritative Name Server

The final destination for any query where the data it receives in response from other name servers is cached.
