DNS just translates IP numbers (the actual address for internet sites) to something easier to understand to human beings, words, or URLs.

Type this on your browser: http://72.21.211.176

It will bring you Amazon website. But that number is more difficult to understand than ... http://amazon.com

DNS converts "amazon.com" to 72.21.211.176, which is what computers actually use to find URLs or Internet addresses.
