What's in a domain? Understanding how domain names work

To put it simply, a domain name is the web address you enter into the URL bar of your web browser. It is your site's identity on the web. These domain names can be created by anyone. But how do these names relate to the rest of the Internet? Often referenced throughout the web by the acronym DNS, the Domain Name system takes your more-familiar web addresses and converts them into IP addresses that computers can understand.
