The simplest way to understand how DNS records work is to use the analogy of a phone book listing. For instance, when you want to call someone, you look in the phone book for their name. The information listed under their name, will include their contact details. Since you want to call them, you would refer to their listed information to find the phone number to dial. Since the phone book contains records in a standardized format, you can deduce from the details of their listing which number to call to reach them. This behavior is very similar to that of how your computer, domain name servers, and DNS records are utilized. Domain name servers like the phone book store DNS records like names, phone numbers, and addresses which are referenced by domain name listing.
