DNS

The domain name system (DNS) is an Internet service that translates domain names (like hotwired.com) into IP addresses (like 204.160.88.11). We use domain names because people can remember words better than numbers, but Web servers still need the IP numbers to access the page. Every time you use a domain name, a DNS server must translate the name into the corresponding IP address.
