Explain like I’m 5: DNS – roguelynn

This post is an accompaniment to my PyCon 2014 and EuroPython 2014 talk, For Lack of a Better Name(server): DNS Explained, that is a deep dive into DNS. Slides can be found here. I previously wrote a post explaining Kerberos “Like I’m 5” that turns out to be one of my most visited pieces, so I figured an ELI5 version of my DNS talk would be beneficial to some.
