Name Services

The answer to the issues involved in maintaining many separate copies of a large text file came in the form of name services, server-based programs which keep track of the name to IP address (and reverse, IP address to name) mappings, and respond to queries from other computers that request one or the other. This way, rather than consulting its own table of names, a client PC could ask a more centralized larger system to provide the information. There are two primary name services, the Internet standard DNS, and the original Microsoft-specific name service, WINS.
