A Domain Name Server knows the connections between IP addresses and domain names. www.imma.dk is a domain name e.g. dk is level 1, imma is level 2 etc.
       Other computers ask DNS's when they don't know the connection themselves. E.g. a request from a browser to www.imma.dk would result in a request to one (or more) DNS(s), returning the IP address - so the browser can continue.
       Some of the level 1 domains are: dk, no, com and edu. This level corresponds to different types of organizations, like countries.
