Why Can't I Access the Website Even Though the Domain Name Has Been Resolved Successfully?
Figure 1 shows the process of accessing a website using a domain name.
The process consists of two phases:
- Phase 1: The DNS server translates the domain name into the IP address of the web server and returns the IP address to the client.
- Phase 2: The client accesses the web server using the IP address, and the web server returns the desired content.
To successfully access a website, both phases are mandatory. If the web server is unavailable, the website cannot be accessed even if the DNS server has resolved the domain name.
