Notes
DNS (Domain Name System)
An Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. Because domain names are alphabetic, they're easier to remember. The Internet however, is really based on IP addresses. Every time you use a domain name, therefore, a DNS service must translate the name into the corresponding IP address. For example, the domain name www.example.com might translate to 198.105.232.4.

CNAME
The CNAME is a way to assign several different names to a computer in a DNS database. For example, you can set up www or m. as an alias for the computer with your Web server.
