What is a nameserver?

A nameserver (sometimes called a DNS server) is what translates a domain name or computer hostname to an IP address, which is a numeric pointer that identifies a computer on the Internet. Each computer/server etc. has an IP address that looks like four numbers separated by a dot:

1.2.3.4
