Joe presented fundamental information about Web Servers and surfing the World Wide Web. Of particular interest is the Domain Name Server (DNS) that converts a URL such as www.google.com into the dotted quad style (18.104.22.168) address actually used over the Internet. Also, a Domain Host Configuration Protocol Server (DHCP) automatically assigns an IP address to the computer at time of connection.
