What is the Domain Name System?
 
The Domain Name System (DNS) helps users navigate the global Internet and connect their computers to web sites or other computers by translating domain names into valid Internet addresses.

Every computer on the Internet has a unique address called its "IP address" or Internet Protocol address. IP addresses are strings of
numbers. Internet users found these series of numbers hard to remember. The DNS was created so a familiar string of characters (the "domain name") could be used instead.

So rather than typing an IP address like "57.67.193.187", you instead type an easy to remember name like "www.inaic.org".
