The article focuses on the significance and role of Domain Name Server (DNS) in computer operating systems. DNS is a server that matches up the Internet domain name of a Web site with its proper numeric Internet Protocol (IP) address. Service operators are advancing all layers in their networks including the DNS layer to develop its operational efficiency. DNS is applicable for Web-based applications, Voice-over-IP, and conferencing.
