What is DNS?

To put simply, DNS works closely with your domain name to connect a name and an IP address. This allows for your browser to find where the website is hosted from; or to let the email server know where to send an email to.

Think of it as an ad in the classifieds where it tells your customers where your shop is physically located and what phone number to use to call you - this is similar to telling computers where to go if someone types in yourdomain.net.au or where to send emails to if they send emails to an email address ending with @yourdomain.net.au.
