A server is a high-capacity computer (processor power, memory, hard drives) connected to the network, the purpose of which is to provide one or more services such as email, domain names, IP address assignment [Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP)], access to file directories, etc.. These services are "consumed" by other computers with direct access via a local network, or indirectly, by an extranet or via the Internet, and which act as clients.
One of the three specific roles allocated to a DNS server
A server is said to be secondary when it obtains all the information for the zone from another server, referred to as a primary server. It regularly downloads the contents of the zone in order to take over from the primary server in the event of an incident. The secondary server has 'authority' for the zone.
Service for French INternet eXchange
Founded in 1995 by the RENATER public interest group, SFINX is a GIX (Global Internet eXchange), or exchange point for Internet traffic, between Internet service providers and telecommunications operators. SFINX can exchange data direct, without transiting through or using international infrastructures. There are GIX in most countries where the Internet has fully developed. They form the infrastructure that enables the interconnection of networks through which the global meshing of the Internet is possible.

Network Information Center
As the name implies, a generic term for an information centre on the Internet. For example, AFNIC is referred to as the "FR NIC" or "NIC France"
An NIC has a variety of assignments:
1. The technical and administrative management of the TLD(s) for which it is responsible. NICs are fully independent in all the decisions regarding the management of their own extension(s). They independently define the conditions for allocating domain names under their extension(s) (naming policy). They are also responsible for the quality of their technical services, and manage the database of domain names under their extension(s) (WHOIS database).
2. Depending on the country, a NIC may only be a registry (a resource manager) or both a registry and registrar, i.e. a resource manager and the seller of this resource in a competitive industry.
3. Finally, a NIC is a centre of information open to all, which provides information and resources useful to the entire Internet community, including beginners as well as experienced users.
