    The Domain Name System (DNS) is a standard technology for managing the names of Web sites and other Internet domains. DNS technology allows you to type names into your Web browser like compnetworking.about.com and your computer to automatically find that address on the Internet. A key element of the DNS is a worldwide collection of DNS servers. then, What is a DNS server ?

    A DNS server is any computer registered to join the Domain Name System. A DNS server runs special-purpose networking software, features a public IP address, and contains a database of network names and addresses for other Internet hosts.

    An alternative definition would be that it is necessary for mapping a human recogonizable name for a website to an IP address.

    DNS system is the system, which powers the Internet as we know it today - it is responsible for turning domain names to IP addresses and locating them on one of the millions of hosting servers. But the DNS system would have been just a concept without its physical representation.

    All the complicated stuff about DNS isnt that hard, what it really is is a Name Server for your IP address. The DNS just translates your domain into your IP address without actually showing your IP address in the address bar.

    A DNS server resolves a name to an IP address, as stated in an earlier answer, but it can also point to multiple IP addresses for load balancing, or for backup servers if one or more is offline or not accepting connections.More on in detail about What Is DNS Server

    It manages all root urls, it will help the domain names to appear once it is entered on the address bar.

    An alternative definition DNS means Domain name Server or Domain name system.DNS helps to convert the ip address into domain name.Domain name into ip address.You cannot remember many website ip address at same time.So domain name is used for remembering the website.
    For example 74.125.239.17 is one ip address of Google.com.It is very difficult to remember always.So you can use domain name to view the particular website.The primary work of DNS is if you give ip address in browser ,it search for domain name of particular ip address.If you give domain name in the address bar of the browser it convert the domain name to ip. If you have any queries regarding DNS visit the site WhoisXY.com

    DNS is a short form of Domain Name Server. DNS is the system which is basically used to translate word-based addresses of systems to the numerical IP address of the computer or system that should be located at that address.

    A DNS server translates a computer or domain name to the associated IP address. It provides a way to map friendly host names, or URLs, to IP addresses.
