Good coverage of domain name servers for beginners. Easily understood by all but
the most non-technologically inclined.

Technical Remarks:

A number of annoying popup windows were triggered by this site.
Used in course? Yes

information is easy to understand while clearly explaining the concepts, as are
most of the "How stuff works" articles.

An easy to read, slightly in depth description of DNS service and how it works.
Written well enough so that even an end-user would understand.
