The Domain Name System or Service (DNS) is a
process that maps hostnames (how humans address
servers) to IP addresses (how computers address
servers).When you visted www.dyndns.org , your
computer resolved that hostname as 22.214.171.124
. This translation happens every time you access
a website, FTP server, or your e-mail.
