Definition Edit

In the Domain Name System (DNS), a resolver is a set of software utilities used to resolve the domain names of Internet resources. There are two primary categories of resolvers (caching/recursive/resolving name server[1] and stub (non-caching) resolver), distinguished by functionality.
