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.


References Edit

  1. The caching/recursive/resolving name server is included under the category of resolver since it plays the dual role of being a resolver and a name server.
