Domain Names (i.e.: www.yahoo.com) were created because it
would be too difficult for us to remember the IP Address for every website. It's easier to remember Yahoo.com instead of
188.8.131.52. Before connecting the user to the website, a DNS server will do the translation to the IP and then serve
up the request, such as a web page. This accounts for the different lag times when requesting sites on the Net.
