DNS:- DNS stands for Domain name system. DNS is used to translate the IP address into a domain name, for example, if any can run “example.com” on their browser then the browser will perform a DNS query against the DNS server.
So that the DNS server can take the hostname and resolve it to a numeric address so that the web browser can connect with the related IP address.
