Translating Domain Names into IP Addresses

Although it’s possible to enter an IP address into a web browser into order to get to a website, it’s a lot easier to enter its domain name instead. However, computers, servers and other devices are unable to make heads or tails of domain names – they strictly rely on binary identifiers. The DNS’s job, then, is to take domain names and translate them into the IP addresses that allow machines to communicate with one another. Every domain name has at least one IP address associated with it.
