Today in Tech History: On January 1, 1985, the Internet's Domain Name System (DNS) was born.
What is DNS and why is it so important, you ask? Well, back before domain names there were only IP addresses. Although IP addresses are still around today, with the addition of the domain name system (DNS), we can now use easy-to-remember domain names like dynadot.com instead of easy-to-forget numbers like 98.2.357.752 to reach what we want. Thanks to DNS, the system translates domain names into IP addresses for us, making things easier for the everyday user like you and me.
Happy 29th birthday DNS!
