The Domain Name System (DNS) is the phonebook of the Internet. Humans access information online through domain names like technomag.co.zw and techmag.tv.
Jasper Mangwana President of Internet Society of Zimbabwe an affiliate of the Internet Society Global discussed with TechnoMag’s Crucial Kuwanga the pre-event of the role of government and regulators in dns governance.
Have you ever heard of DNS? What is 126.96.36.199? This TechnoMag reporter has many t-shirts with such numbers and is more curious to ask on whether it is the only language computers understand and respond to.Also heard of DNS security what is My IP Address?
Mangwana explained the immense benefits of DNS stating that the country stands to benefit more than lose out.As an ICT expert par excellence he elaborated nitty gritties in the Domain Name System.
TechnoMag will allow all viewers and readers of our online TV to send through any tech questions you may have after all we break it fresh and have all ICT answers for you.For TechnoMag Crucial Kuwanga asked explosive questions about this animal called dns if at all it is an animal for those who do not know.
On his first question what is Internet Society of Zim and its inclusiveness with(ISOC) and Mangwana’s role as its president the youthful charismatic ICT genius said
Clearly their mandate to connect the unconnected, defending the internet, and innovating to secure the future is something they will be brainstorming in tomorrows event on the role of government and regulators in DNS Governance.
Mangwana took the opportunity to tell viewers in his own words that
”…dns has in the phone book….a respective number…ip 6 resolved thru that…an example as technomag.co.za has a number behind that….many resolutions ..none of us can cram the numbers…some cnt even cram their own national identity id numbers…we search specific solutions from internet..”
So clearly the internet has got its own language system and works through the very DNS system to get and understand information like through the website of this online magazine www.technomag.co.zw or www.techmag.tv.
