Introduction to Seminar Topic on Domain Name System:

The main objective of this paper is to give idea of domain name system. Generally, usage of internet is growing day by day, these internet uses ip address. These IP addresses are in numeric and there may be problem in remembering these addresses. When internet usage was less then to solve this issue they have followed a technique by writing the host name and address in a file named hosts.txt.

This type of technique was quite satisfactory when few hundred machines are connected to the network. But as the network usage is growing and thousands of machines are being connected, there rose a problem. Hence in order to avoid these problems, Domain name systems have been developed.

Brief into Domain Name System

Domain name system is defined as set of protocols and services on a network. By using this system users can use some names instead of using the IP addresses. The DNS domain database has all the domain names stored in it. A domain name space is created by all the domains stored in the database.
