DNS is used to point a domain name to the server where the actual site is stored. The name server details are provided by the web hosting providers. eg: ns1.samplenameserver1.com, ns2.samplenameserver2.com .
Short for Domain Name System (or Service), an Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. Because domain names are alphabetic, they're easier to remember. The Internet however, is really based on IP addresses. Every time you use a domain name, therefore, a DNS service must translate the name into the corresponding IP address.
Domain Name Servers are servers that manage domain names using DNS. The Domain Name Servers figure out whether and where to forward a request for a Web page by using the domain name.
