DNS Servers

This article contains IT Services central DNS server addresses.

What is a DNS server?

Doman Name Service (DNS) is the means by which computers translate machine-readable IP addresses (e.g. 128.135.12.53) to human-readable hostnames (e.g. www.uchicago.edu) and back again. DNS servers are the machines that perform these translations.

What are the IT Services DNS server addresses?

The DNS server addresses are:

  • 128.135.247.50
  • 128.135.249.50

Note that your local network may require different DNS servers which also have addresses beginning in 128.135. Do not change these local DNS servers in your configuration, as they are unaffected by central DNS servers.
