DNS - Domain Name System



The DNS plays a large role in making the internet what we know it as today. The DNS is a model for tracking other machines that contain web sites and their numeric IP addresses, then it translates the domain names (www.me.com into 243.290.93.210) from name to IP. When a domain name is purchased it is assigned an IP address by which it is recognized by other machines in the DNS server.
