Domain Name System
Domain Name System (DNS)
USA
An internet system that translates websites' familiar domain names (or URLs) to the corresponding numerical internet protocol (IP) addresses (for example, the domain name, us.practicallaw.com, might be translated to the IP address 83.221.223.99). The domain name system is administered by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN).
