    Definition: Drum roll please... A network gateway it's a system that joins two networks together. There is also a company known as Gateway Computers... theres is a few other meanings but I just posted up the one I thought you would wanted to hear.

    Domain Name Service, it's a Internet service that translates domain names into IP addresses. The www is really based on IP addresses and when you use a domain name a DNS service has to translate the name into the an IP address. For example, the domain name www.AntiOnline.com would translate to a IP like 63.146.10X.XXX or blah blah.
