    DNS is short form of domain name server, it will translate your domain name like yourdomain.com to nameserver and then nameserver to IP address ... it is human readable and can be easily remembered instead of IPv4 or IPv6 addresses ....

    The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical distributed 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 domain names, which can be easily memorized by humans, to the numerical IP addresses needed for the purpose of computer services and devices worldwide. The Domain Name System is an essential component of the functionality of most Internet services because it is the Internet's primary directory service.

    Hi!

    Domain Name System is a powerful internet technology for converting domain names to IP(internet protocol) addresses. The main function of DNS is to translate word-based addresses of systems such as example.com to the numerical IP(Internet protocol) address of the computer or system in which computers can be understand. It also provides a list of mail servers which accept Emails for each domain name.

    Hope it helps!

    DNS stands for domain name server. it helps in translating or converting domain names into IP adresses, which are difficult to learn and remind to us for daily uses. it also gives many mail servers and help accepting emails for every domain name.

    DNS stands for Domain Name Server or Domain Name System. It is a system that converts the human readable name of a website (www.anything.com) into a computer readable form called IP address which consists of just numbers, and vice-versa.

    The process of converting a website name to an IP address consists of 2 steps. When we enter a website name into a web browser, the DNS works as per the following steps.

    1. Converts website name into the nameserver of the web hosting provider.
    2. Converts the nameserver into the IP address of the server on which the website is hosted.

    In this way, the DNS identifies the unique IP address which is associated with any website URL and helps us easily access any website. It is many times called ‘phone book of the internet’.
