Domain Name Services (DNS) is the Internet's equivalent of a phone book. DNS servers maintain a directory of domain names (example: uwindsor.ca) and translate them to Internet Protocol (IP) addresses (example: 137.207.71.196). This is necessary because, although domain names are easy for people to remember, computers or machines, access websites based on IP addresses. The Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) is a network protocol used to assign IP addresses and provide configuration information to devices such as servers, desktops, or mobile devices, so they can communicate on a network using the Internet Protocol (IP). All IP addresses are dynamically allocated by our DHCP servers on both wireless and wired networks
