If you don't know what it is, you apparantly don't need it ;-). If you are not yourself the network administrator go ask this person whether you need it or not.

NIS and NIS+ are SUN's Network Information System, formerly called Yellow Pages. It's the most used system for network management in UNIX environments. If you insist on getting to know more go to http://metalab.unc.edu/mdw/HOWTO/NIS-HOWTO.html
