    The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical decentralized naming system for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. It 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 the purpose of 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 of the Internet

    Domain Name Servers (DNS) are the Internet's equivalent of a phone book. They maintain a directory of domain names and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Justhost

This is necessary because, although domain names are easy for people to remember, computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses.

    yeah, DNS is Domain Name Servers and the Internet's equivalent of a phone book. They maintain a directory of domain names and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. This is necessary because, although domain names are easy for people to remember, computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses.

    Domain Name Servers (DNS) are the Internet's equivalent of a phone book. They maintain a directory of domain names and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.

    This is necessary because, although domain names are easy for people to remember, computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses.

    Information from all the domain name servers across the Internet are gathered together and housed at the Central Registry. Host companies and Internet Service Providers interact with the Central Registry on a regular schedule to get updated DNS information.

    When you type in a web address, e.g., jimsbikes.com, your Internet Service Provider views the DNS associated with the domain name, translates it into a machine friendly IP address (for example 216.168.224.70 is the IP for jimsbikes.com) and directs your Internet connection to the correct website.

    After you register a new domain name or when you update the DNS servers on your domain name, it usually takes about 12-36 hours for the domain name servers world-wide to be updated and able to access the information. This 36-hour period is referred to as propagation.

    DNS resembles a telephone directory for the Internet. In the event that you know a man's name however don't have the foggiest idea about their phone number, you can just find it in a telephone directory. DNS gives this same support of the Internet.
    When you visit http://dyn.com in a program, your PC utilizes DNS to recover the site's IP address of 204.13.248.115. Without DNS, you would just have the capacity to visit our site (or any site) by going to its IP address specifically, for example, http://204.13.248.115.

    DNS, which stands for domain name system, controls your domain name's website and email settings. When visitors go to your domain name, its DNS settings control which company's server it reaches out to.
