What is DNS ?

DNS (Domain Name System) is a service that translates domain names into IP addresses. Users can easily remember domain names, but he computers understand IP addresses that’s why we need DNS.

You can query those matches on securityforeveryone.com

There is two type of IP addresses IPv4, and IPv6. IPv4 address looks like these:

            8.8.8.8
            127.0.0.1
            255.255.255.255
            

IPv6 addressed looks like these (all of them are the same IP):

            ::ffff:808:808
            0:0:0:0:0:ffff:0808:0808
            0000:0000:0000:0000:0000:ffff:0808:0808
