Recursive Resolver

The Recursive Resolver is the one that will get queries from a group of clients and ask around the Internet in search of the answers. It is usually a service provided by ISPs and it serves several clients. It can store answers in its memory (known as cache) for a period of time. If it receives a query whose answer is already stored in the cache, the Recursive Resolver will answer from the cache.
