A Domain name in its simplest meaning is commonly referred to as the full address for a website, for example www.abc.com. This Domain name can be broken down into three parts. The top-level domain name in this example is com (commercial), the second-level domain name would be abc (usually the name of the organization or entity) and finally www (points to a host/server). There are companies whose business is in maintaining the list of Domain names ensuring that each and every domain name created does not conflict with one another.
A Domain name server on the other hand is essentially a large distributed database that processes the domain name and maps it to the IP address (which represents a physical point on the Internet). There are many advantages of this system; one of them being that it’s easier to remember www.abc.com rather than an IP address like 151.325.346.134 which machines use to locate others.
