In the course of this test the successful resolution of names on the internet is checked. When a website is addressed the hostname (e.g. www.rtr.at) is converted into an address (e.g. 220.127.116.11) using the DNS-system.
The usage of nearly all services on the internet postulates the successful operation of the DNS-service.
