Domain Name System (DNS)

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

An often-used analogy to explain the Domain Name System is that it serves as a phone book for the Internet by translating human-friendly computer hostnames (e.g. www.example.com) into IP addresses (e.g. 192.1.1.).
