What is Domain Name System (DNS)?

Domain Name System (DNS) is a hierarchical naming system built on a distributed database for computers, services, or any resource connected to the Internet or a private network. Most importantly, it translates domain names meaningful to humans into the numerical identifiers associated with networking equipment for the purpose of locating and addressing these devices worldwide. Analogous to a network “phone book,” DNS is how a browser can translate yahoo.com to the actual IP address of the Yahoo web servers (66.94.234.13). In short, DNS translates names into IP addresses.
