Domain Name Servers (DNS) are the Internet’s equivalent of a phone book. They maintain a directory of domain names and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Although  domain names are not difficult for users to remember, computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses. Information from all the domain name servers across the Internet are gathered together and housed at the Central Registry. Host companies and Internet Service Providers interact with the Central Registry on a regular schedule to get updated DNS information. In this article, we will show you how to change DNS in Windows 10 when you have troubles with your internet connecting.
