Domain Name System


Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical decentralized Discovery Mechanism for computers, services, or other resources connected to the Internet or a private network.

Domain Name System associates various information with domain names assigned to each of the participating entities. Most prominently, it translates more readily memorized domain names to the numerical IP addresses needed for locating and identifying computer services and devices with the underlying network protocols. By providing a worldwide, distributed directory service, the Domain Name System is an essential component of the functionality on the Internet, that has been in use since 1985.
