The Domain Name System (DNS) is used to connect IP addresses with websites names. With the help of DNS, web users can type in simple URLs, like 4psa.com, instead of long strings of numbers (known as IP addresses).

Someone once said “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.” Okay, well, it was the sage wisdom of Mrs. Gump, but regardless, it’s a great metaphor for how unpredictable life can be. Sometimes it leaves a bad taste in your mouth, sometimes it’s disappointing, and other times it’s so incredible you need to stop and savor the moment because you know that it’s fleeting.
