DNS is a domain name resolution system that was invented in 1984 for the Internet, only one system that allows setting up a correspondence between IP address and domain name. Or it can be understood that DNS on the Internet will translate the domain name that users type into the IP address.
IP address consists of 4 groups of numbers separated by dots. For example, if you type your site example.com, DNS will resolve and return the results with the IP range
With the video illustrated below by GoDaddy, I believe you will easily figure out what DNS is and how it works.

How does DNS work?

  • Each service provider operates and maintains its DNS server.
  • INTERNIC (Internet Network Information Center) is responsible for monitoring the domain names and the corresponding DNS servers.
  • DNS can query other DNS servers when requested from outside.

How to use DNS
Since DNS is updated, the response varies depending on the network connection from the client to the server, so you should consider choosing the DNS server that best suits your intended use. In my experience, CloudFlare is a very good intermediate DNS. You should use.
