A DNS server resolves domain names into IP addresses. So when you request “eukhost.com” for example, the DNS server finds out the address for the domain, and sends your request the right way.

If you continually get DNS errors while trying to brows any site, but the same site on another computer on the same network is working fine. Then this problem is because of the DNS cache of the machine and you need to reload your DNS cache on that machine.
