the product will not ship until the end of this year. The

directory, and management services tailored to the Red Hat

DNS MARKS 20TH BIRTHDAY

Posted June 24, 2003 5:15 AM Pacific Time

The database system that sends Web surfers to the right page
and gets e-mail messages where they need to go turned 20
years old on Monday.

DNS (Domain Name System) had its first successful test on June
23, 1983, at the University of Southern California School of
Engineering's Information Sciences Institute (ISI), in Marina
del Rey, Calif., said Paul Mockapetris, the researcher who
invented the system. Jon Postel, another computer scientist
at ISI, had assigned him to create a new kind of directory of
the Internet, then a fledgling network of about 200
computers.
