domain name server
"In simplified terms, a DNS (Domain Name Server) is like a phonebook that matches names to phone numbers. When you use an alphanumeric address such as www.cdh.ucla.edu, your computer needs to understand what numerical IP addresses it needs to contact to, and this is accomplished through DNS servers."
"A domain name server is like a directory that contains a list of domain names and their corresponding IP addresses. Domain Name Servers are also called Name Servers, Domain Name System Servers or DNS Servers."
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
