DNS

Domain Name System is used by devices connecting to the Internet to locate websites by mapping a domain name to a website’s IP address. For example, a DNS server maps the domain name www.fortinet.com to the IP address 66.171.121.34.

A FortiGate can control which DNS servers the network uses. A FortiGate can also function as a DNS server, as can a FortiDNS.

Technical Writer at Fortinet
Bruce has been working with computers, and related technology, since before the World Wide Web was a thing. He has worked in system and network administration. He has even dabbled in technical support. He has made the switch to technical writing as part of his deep, dark and dastardly plan to make the arcane machinations of IT technology more easily understood by the poor folks who use it.
