All DNS servers are organized in a hierarchy and communicate with each other using private network protocols. Root server is at the top level of the hierarchy, maintain the complete database of domain names and their corresponding IP addresses.

Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol(DHCP) is a network management protocol to dynamically assigns an IP address and other network configuration parameters to each device on a network. ITIS provides the internet connectivity through a DHCP server across the campus. IIT Bhilai members are not needed to set a specific IP address for their machine. Machines are configured their IP address automatically along with other parameters like gateway, subnet mask, etc.
