Redirect Server
Supports the setup of a connection by identifying alternative addresses of a recipient in the database of the registrar and returning them to the originator of the request. The originator can then send a new request to the alternative address.
A registrar (domain name registar) is an organisation or a company that registers Internet domains.
Routers connect two separate networks. This means, for example, that you can connect the local network to another LAN or a WAN. When a PC wants to send a data packet, this packet must travel over a router. The router uses the IP address to detect the network it must send the data to. In addition to connecting to networks, routers can also execute certain control functions, such as maintaining a simple firewall. In a home network, routers are usually used to connect the local network to the Internet and to enable simultaneous Internet access for multiple users.
