Peering is a process by which two Internet networks connect and exchange traffic. It allows them to directly hand off traffic between each other’s customers, without having to pay a third party to carry that traffic across the Internet for them.

While the DNS should largely be transparent to users, organisations with an online presence need to ensure their DNS setup is robust. This page gives an overview of how the DNS works, what is involved in DNS queries and DNS caching, and how to optimise DNS performance.

IPv4 and IPv6 are the forms of IP addresses in use today.
