What is the DNS?

Follow

The Domain Name System (DNS) is the networked system that allows you to type a domain name like example.com.au into a browser and have a web page come up a fraction of a second later. The domain name example.com.au is a stand in for an Internet Protocol (IP) address, say 192.168.1.1.

 

The DNS translates the domain name into an IP address and allows your computer to find the server with that number.
