solutions, which is particuarily interesting because it's used for DNS Resolution in KubernetesDNS Resolution in Kubernetes
To figure out how [[DNS Resolution]] works in [[Kubernetes]], there are a few important components to consider:

k8s DNS server running on the cluster (e.g. [[CoreDNS]])

. Most of its functionality is implemented through plugins, so it's very flexible and extensible by nature.

Let's see how we can configure a host to be a DNS Server.

To start, you can download the executable and execute it:

#> coredns_1.8.4_linux_amd64.tgz 

tar -xzvf coredns_1.8.4_linux_amd64.tgz 
#> coredns 

#> .:53 
#> [INFO] CoreDNS-1.8.4 
#> [INFO] linux/amd64, go1.12 
#> ...

To configure the CoreDNS to have names and addresses that we want, we use Corefile - a file for configuring CoreDNS. In there we can set it to read our local /etc/hosts file like so:

cat >> Corefile 
	hosts /etc/hosts 

The hosts section that we specified in Corefile is actually a plugin.
