DNS is an integral part of working with the Internet, but what if you don't understand how it works? This course will give you all the insight you need to have a basic understanding of DNS and how it translates http://220.127.116.11/ into http://google.com/! The class is designed for web professionals and almost anyone looking for a walkthrough on general DNS concepts. We will begin with an introduction to the Domain naming system then move on to how the client computers translate DNS information. Lastly, we will look at the major components of a DNS server and clear up how to work with DNS zones and subdomains.
Applicable Job Roles: webmasters, web programmers, and web application developers.
