DNS (Domain Name System)

DNS (Domain Name System) is an online system created by Paul Mockapetris in 1983 and serves as a solution for the growing number of devices connected to the internet. The domain name system works as a vast and accessible online directory that translates hostnames into numbers, referred to as IP addresses. It allows computers worldwide to communicate with each other.
