A name server is a computer that stores information about domain names and translates them into Internet Protocol addresses.

A name server is important because it maps human-readable domain names into their corresponding IP addresses, which makes it possible for users to access websites using domain names rather than IP addresses. Additionally, name servers are responsible for caching DNS records, which speeds up the process of translating domain names into IP addresses.

There are different types of name servers. The most common type of name server is a recursive name server, which is responsible for caching DNS records and translating domain names into IP addresses. Other types of name servers include authoritative name servers and root name servers.
