How do Domain Name Servers Work?

DNS (Domain Name Servers) keep a directory of all domain names and translate them into IP (Internet Protocol) addresses. This is important owing to the fact that although domain names are easy for individuals to remember, computers access websites based on Internet Protocol addresses.

Information from all the DNS across the Internet is collected together and stored at the Central Registry. Internet Service Providers (ISP’s) and Host companies interact with the Central Registry regularly to get updated Domain Name Server information.

When you type a web address; for instance, www.housing.com, your ISP views the DNS that is associated with the domain name, translates it into an IP address that is machine friendly and then directs your Internet connection to the right site.

When you update the DNS servers on your domain name or after you register a brand new domain name, it usually takes about 24 hours for the DNS globally to be updated and able to access the information.
