Understanding fundamental Domain Name System (DNS) concepts is a critical part of your understanding of how the internet works. DNS is the mechanism that helps you get from Point A to Point B. This paper will cover basic DNS terminology, in general terms, with nothing vendor specific or proprietary. There are many opinions on this subject, so this paper will lay out multiple points of view, wherever possible. The goal is to provide a good representation of all these terms and how they actually function in the real world.
