In depth DNS tutorial?





firebrandglass
Hi,

Thanks for taking time to read this. I have a vague understanding of domain names and how they work, but would like a deeper understanding of it so I have more control. I've not yet applied for hosting here, though I will when the server crash dust settles. However I have hosting through my ISP and have just registered a domain through go-daddy, and am wondering how to get "A" to point to "B" and so on. And I don't just want to do it, I want to UNDERSTAND what I'm doing, how it works, so on, so forth.

Long question short, is there a clear and concise tutorial on this matter any one can point me to? I have read FAQ's here, and done some research but I'm only confusing myself more.

Thanks in advance for your help!

I would suggest you read the section on DNS at howstuffworks.com
URL: http://www.howstuffworks.com/dns.htm

It provides everything I think you're looking for and also other links to where you may find more info.

For a much more through in depth explanation use wikipedia
URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_Name_System

Hope that helps
