What does DNS mean?

 Domain Name Service (DNS)
The important benefit of DNS is that we are able to use domain names such as "activewebhost.com" or "yahoo.com" to access websites.  Without DNS, we would be forced to use IP addresses such as instead of the much easier to remember domain name.

The DNS is the protocol (or method) that allows two computers to speak together.  DNS does the work of "translating" or better known as "resolving" the domain name to the IP address.
