Is ISP and DNS same?

When a user wants to access a webpage, they enter the address (or DNS name) into their browser’s address bar. This information is then sent in the form of a ‘DNS query’ to their Internet Service Provider’s (ISP) DNS servers. Every ISP has a database of DNS names and their corresponding IP addresses.

Is a nameserver an IP address?

A name server is a server that returns an IP address when given a domain name. This IP address is basically the domain’s location on the Internet. If you are using name servers obtained from your web host, you are using your web host’s servers, and they typically set up the IP addresses for you.

Can I use IP address instead of nameserver?

The reason these need to be names, not IPs, is that your hosting company may need to move IP addresses later. If you were allowed to enter an IP, and they switched IPs, your record would be out of date. By entering a name, the DNS system can properly resolve the authoritative nameserver name to an IP.

How do you tell if it’s your router or ISP?

Check with a wired connection directly into your modem – if it persists, it’s your ISP. Then check with a wired connection going through your router – if it persists, then it’s a problem with your router. Finally, if that all works fine, it’s the wireless portion of your connection that is bad.

What does nameserver stand for in Domain Name System?

The DNS stands for Domain Name System or Domain Naming System, Domain Name Service depending upon whom you talk to. It is a global system that translates the IP addresses to human-readable domain names. On the other hand, a nameserver is used to locate the DNS server.

Can you use ISPConfig as a name server?

If you need more name servers, or maybe you had only one host where you installed ISPConfig, you can add hosts to the ISPConfig setup. For hosts that run only name service, even a small host is sufficient. If you can install Linux and ISPConfig on the host and it has a static IP address you can use it as a name server.

What does NS lookup mean in DNS checker?

Nameserver lookup or NS Lookup is a tool for getting name server records of any domain name. NS is a record type of DNS, and it is set up via a hosting provider. Whenever a browser sends a DNS request to DNS server, it sends back the nameserver records, and the name servers are then used to get real IP address behind a domain name.
