What is a DNS Server

ADomain NameSystem, orDNS, server is a device that responds to a DNS query, working to deliver the correct IP address to the client. DNS servers make a website’s IP address available to a web browser through the DNS client embedded in a computer or mobile operating system.

DNS Servers may be primary DNS servers or secondary DNS servers. The primary DNS server will contain all of the relevant zone and record information used within a network. The secondary DNS server will contain read-only copies of zone information and is used mostly for resiliency and redundancy, but may also be used for load balancing.
