How the domain name and DNS nameservers work

I know many people who are not technical have lots of question about domain name and DNS name servers.

How the domains work?

How to park my domain?

What is nameservers?

What is DNS?

You are registering your domain on godaddy or any web-site which allowed you to purchase domain name. Once you purchase domain, you need to park your domain. To park domain you need to setup the DNS nameservers.

You get your DNS nameserves from your hosting provider where you host your web-site. This is the way to linkup your domain with your web-site pages.

Now, let’s see how it works when user type domain name in browser.

  • Computer send request to the ISP (Internet service provider) resolver to find out the IP Address of your domain name.
  • ISP (Internet service provider) resolver send request to the “.” Name server.
  • Once “.” Name server receive request than response back to ISP (Internet service provider) resolver to try using the com. Nameserver.
  • Now, after getting response ISP (Internet service provider) resolver send request to com. Nameserver.
  • The com. Nameserver look in to glue records for your domain and send the DNS nameservers information to your ISP (Internet service provider) resolver.
  • Now, ISP (Internet service provider) resolvers have the DNS nameserver for your domain, so send request for the web-page of your domain.
  • ISP (Internet service provider) resolvers send web-page to your computer browser to display.

 

 

As you change your DNS nameservers record in your domain account, that domain points to the hosting server. You need to understand domain name and web hosting before you plan to start your own web-site.
