Recursive DNS server: What is its purpose?
The first thing your browser will do when you try to enter https://www.dnsmanaged.org/ is found the IP address of the domain name dnsmanaged.org. It will inquire, “What is the IP address of dnsmanaged.org?” from the Recursive DNS server.
However, you might be wondering how our browser is able to identify the IP address of the Recursive DNS server. Our workstation/IP device’s address for this server is either explicitly set up or automatically distributed and configured through DHCP.
Let’s move on. The server will then determine whether the cache contains the answer to the query, which is the IP address of dnsmanaged.org. It will immediately deliver the resolution to the browser if it is already in the cache. However, the server will query the DNS root server with the identical query if it is not yet in the cache.
