DNS

DNS is an Internet directory service that provides mappings between human-readable domain names and numeric IP addresses. DNS mappings are recorded in resource records that are stored on name servers distributed throughout the Internet. A device needing to access a host across the Internet sends a DNS query to a name server. The name server consults its resource records and returns an answer with the IP address of the specified name.
