Domain Name Servers (DNS) are the Internet’s equivalent of a phone book. They maintain a directory of domain names and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. Although domain names are not difficult for users to remember, computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses. Information from all the domain name servers across the Internet are gathered together and housed at the Central Registry.
