The process of matching domain names with their Internet Protocol numbers (IP numbers). A combination of computers and software (referred to as "name servers") use the data in the Domain Name System (DNS) to determine which IP numbers correspond to a particular domain name. Once the domain name is resolved, a Web site will "come up" when you type in a URL.
