We've seen that domains are groups of related computers. Domains have names. Individual hosts have unique, fully qualified domain names.

Domain name servers keep track of the correspondence between IP addresses and the corresponding domain names. Responsibility for maintain ing the lists of names and addresses is decentralized.
