  1. Name server

    A name server is a computer server that hosts a network service for providing responses to queries against a directory service. It maps a human-recognizable identifier to a system-internal, often numeric identification or addressing component. This service is performed by the server in response to a network service protocol request. An example of a name server is the server component of the Domain Name System, one of the two principal name spaces of the Internet. The most important function of these DNS servers is the translation of human-memorable domain names and hostnames into the corresponding numeric Internet Protocol addresses, the second principal name space of the Internet which is used to identify and locate computer systems and resources on the Internet.
