By default, computers that are statically configured for TCP/IP attempt to dynamically register host (A) and pointer (PTR) resource records (RRs) for IP addresses configured and used by their installed network connections.

By default, all computers register records based on their fully qualified domain name (FQDN). The primary full computer name, a FQDN, is based on the primary DNS suffix of a computer appended to its Computer name.

What is the advantage, if any, of running one's own DNS server? Surely the link between domain name and IP address must already have been established?
