If we are using DHCP in our network which gives dynamic IPs to every computer that turns on or requests one, then it is not possible to configure DNS statically. For that we should configure our DNS with DHCP in a manner that whenever a computer gets a new IP, its FQDN will be automatically updated with the new IP in DNS.
