The Domain Name System (DNS) is essentially a distributed database that translates hostnames into IP addresses (and IP addresses back to hostnames). That database also contains information related to each domain, such as how the domain is organized into zones, where to route mail for that domain, and who to contact with questions associated with the domain.
