How to Fix DNS Server Error?

What is a DNS server error?

DNS is the Domain Name System using which the internet protocol address is assigned to the domain names. Each computer connected to the internet must have IP Address and it is the combination of Numbers and dots.

As IP Address is assigned to the individual domain, we can open the website using the IP Address also. But the reason behind the domain name is that it will be easy for humans to remember the words than the numbers.

It is not a possible matter to remember the IP Address of all the websites like remembering the domains names of the websites. When a browser requests to load a domain name, it is converted into IP Address to find the exact location and then the content is loaded through the Internet Service Provider (ISP) with the help of HTTP (Hype Text Transfer Protocol).
