The application that runs through every DNS server is known as the BIND, or the Berkeley Internet Name Domain, was created as a graduate student project.
The DNS (domain name system) was originally created to support the influx of email growth/communications on the ARPANET, one of the first building blocks of today's internet.
IP addresses play an important role in servicing the DNS. It's the DNS's job to resolve URLs (uniform resource locator) into IP addresses. For example, the URL howstuffsworks.com is translated by the DNS into the IP address 220.127.116.11
Why do we need the DNS?
There are really seven steps from start to finish in the job of the DNS, and takes only milliseconds to complete.
The DNS is used in computers and mobile devices to make people's lives easier. The DNS remembers addresses for us, so we don't have to.
