A CDE Definition
Converting a name into the address required by a machine or network. For example, in a TCP/IP network (the worldwide standard), common examples of name resolution are converting a human-readable name assigned to a computer to its IP address in the network or converting a domain name to its IP address on the Internet. Looking up a phone number by turning the pages in a telephone book is a human version of name resolution. See address resolution, resolve, naming service, WINS and DNS.
