DNS stands for "Domain Name System" or "Domain Name Server". DNS takes a domain name, such as www.dnsfilter.com, translates it to an IP address and serves up the content located at that IP address. This allows us to navigate the internet in a simpler way. Instead of having to know your favorite website's IP address, we can get there by simply entering the domain name.
