This service maps TCP/IP numbers, such as 22.214.171.124, to a more easily remembered name, such as www.geek.com. Thus, when you type www.geek.com into your...
The service that resolves computer names into numeric Internet addresses (IP addresses) and vice versa. The Domain Name Service translates references to a name, such as webct1.cc.iastate.edu, into an IP address, such as 126.96.36.199.
(DNS) A static, hierarchical name service used with TCP/IP hosts, & is housed on a number of servers on the Internet. Basically, it maintains a database for figuring out & finding (or resolving) host names & OP addresses on the Internet. this allows users to specify remote computers by host names rather than numerical IP addresses. The advantage of the DNS is that you don't have to remember numerical OP addresses for all the Internet sites available to access.
Domain name service allows a more friendly way to remember places on the Internet. DNS is what maps IP numbers to domain names across the Internet.
The "Domain Name System" is a protocol for turning host names into IP addresses. The DNS-Server assigns a host name alias (e.g. www.gdata.de) to unmemorable IP addresses (e.g. 188.8.131.52) and manages the processes involved with this.
A service available with TCP/IP that lets a group of systems (defined as a domain) share the system names and addresses list for many systems. DNS saves the overhead of having every system maintain its own list of systems.
The means by which computer names (e.g. "ipprimer.windsorcs.com") are converted into IP addresses. All communication on the Internet is done based on IP addresses. The Domain Name Service allows "us humans" to use names for computers, which, for us, are much easier to understand and remember. The "address lookup" process converts address names like "www.microsoft.com" to IP addresses like "184.108.40.206".
UDP protocol (defined in RFC 2181) for resolving names to IP addresses and vice versa. This leads to a hierarchical host naming structure which gives each computer on a network a unique name. See also fully qualified domain name (FQDN), resolver.
The DNS is the addressing protocol that allows the Internet network's computers to find each other. Email addresses are based on DNS addresses. Every computer (and user) in a network using the DNS has a unique address. You need DNS to run your mail system. You can provide this service internally by running a DNS server, or your Internet provider can supply this service to you as part of your Internet connection.
A Domain Name Service allows you to use a name rather than a cryptic IP address. Before DNS servers were widely implemented, users had to depend solely on local hosts.txt files that mapped IP addresses to easy-to-remember names. DNS names cannot be more than 255 characters in length. See URL.
Domain Name Service from AIWH guides you through the process of registering, transferring, and maintaining your domain name for email and website use.
A TCP/IP service that translates domain names to and from numeric IP addresses. It is through the DNS that the domain name of a computer on the Internet is mapped to its IP address.
A service that translates domain names into IP addresses.
Most Web hosting packages include domain name service. This means your Web host directs all inquiries to www.yourname.com to your files on their server.
This is a service offered by an ISP or IPP that registers a customer's Domain Name through InterNIC the service that regulates domain names.
The process that converts an IP address into a host name.
This is the facility which allows end-users to access computers by user-friendly names. DNS translates these names into a string of numbers known as an IP address. Each computer attached to the Internet is assigned a unique IP address.
The Internet system whereby textual addresses (such as www.parliament.vic.gov.au) are converted into Internet provider numbers (220.127.116.11). A DNS service can be offered by Internet service providers or hosts and domain name registrars.
A system which translates between Internet domain names (eg internet-today.co.uk) and numerical Internet addresses (IP addresses) such as 18.104.22.168
The Internet service that translates server names (www.lamphost.net) to IP addresses (22.214.171.124).
The name service used on the Internet to resolve hostnames to IP addresses and IP addresses to hostnames.
A name service used with TCP/IP hosts. A DNS exists on numerous servers over the Internet. It is a database for finding host names and IP addresses on the Internet and trying to figure them out.
A protocol by which computer hostnames may be resolved to the matching IP address/es. DNS is implemented by the Berkeley Internet Name Daemon. There exists a recent version of DNS that allows dynamic name registration by network clients or by a DHCP server. This recent protocol is known as dynamic DNS (DDNS).
The name resolution service for IP addresses that provides the text-based addresses for Internet resources. For example, DNS enables a server with the IP address of 126.96.36.199 to be found on the Internet as www.---.com. The DNS provides the protocol that allows clients (your computer) and servers (the Internet) to communicate with each other.
Standard naming architecture used for naming on the Internet Protocol (IP).
A service that records and tracks all Internet addresses.
The Internet service that translates server names (www.NextLevelInternet.com) to IP addresses (188.8.131.52).
In order for a domain to be registered with InterNIC, there need to be two DNS servers to which the domain will point. Internet Channel supplies Domain Name Service as part of several of our Commercial Services.
A distributed database system that allows TCP/IP applications to resolve a host name into a correct IP address.
The process by which text-based domain name addresses are translated (or resolved) into numeric IP addresses by way of name servers. Many registrars, Web hosts, and ISPs offer domain name service to customers. Note that the acronym DNS can stand for both Domain Name System and Domain Name Service.
In reference to the Internet, the DNS is a unique name that identifies an Internet site.
A server program that translates names of network resources into numeric TCP/IP addresses.
