DNS Filtering is Making Your Internet Safer, Faster, and Reliable
It is like a system in place that sits between the Internet and
the end user, which stains the content that goes through, and it is called DNS
DNS filtering - or Domain Name System filtering is a method of
blocking access to certain websites, or IP addresses, which is deemed malicious.
The DNS makes it easy to remember domain names to be used - such
as Google.com - rather than remembering and typing the IP addresses, like; 198.35.00.01.
So DNS makes it easy as it maps IP addresses to domain names.
Every domain when purchased is assigned with a unique IP address
that allows the site to be located. When you type the address in the browser bar a DNS
query will be performed. The DNS server will look up the IP address of the
domain/webpage, which will allow a connection to be made between the browser and the
server where the website is hosted. The webpage will then be loaded.
