Today, we’re uncovering the hidden danger of “Look-Alike Domain Scams.” But first, let’s understand the fascinating World Wide Web. It’s a vast interconnected network that links computers worldwide. To navigate this web, we rely on a system called DNS (Domain Name System). DNS acts as a translator, converting complex numerical addresses (IP addresses) into user-friendly domain names. For example, it turns “www.example.com” into the specific IP address needed to find the website. With DNS, we can explore the web using familiar names instead of numbers.
