DNS (Domain Name System)

The Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical naming system for computers, services, and other resources connected to the Internet.

It translates names to numerical IP addresses, providing a distributed directory service that has been used since the 1980s.

DNS is critical for locating and identifying computer services and devices.
