DNS

Domain Name System
A system that stores information associated with domain names in a distributed database on networks, such as the Internet. The domain name system associates many types of information with domain names, but most importantly, it provides the IP address associated with the domain name. It also lists mail exchange servers accepting e-mail for each domain. This means that DNS is involved with each page visit on the internet and with each email message sent.
