Q. What is a DNS?

A. DNS stands for Domain Name Server (also referred to as Domain Name Service or Domain Name System). A DNS translates domain names into IP addresses. If someone wants to access SWD Hosting's web site (www.swdhosting.ca), the DNS translates the domain name into its corresponding IP address 38.99.171.201 allowing the computer to locate SWD Hosting's web server.
