What is a domain name?
If the internet was a street map, and websites were houses, and you wanted to visit a particular house, you would do so by looking up their address – and then going to that address. With the internet, website addresses are long, numerical addresses called IP addresses that are difficult and impractical to remember for humans, but great for other computers. Humans don’t use numbers to communicate – we use language (of which numbers are only a small part).
To make life easier for humans, user-friendly domain names are used to create an easy-to-remember handle for the IP address of a website. These language-based names re-direct us to the website we are looking for. To make this possible, when a domain name is registered, it is associated with a DNS (Domain Name Server) that links the name to the website property that it is associated with.
Domain names are a unique resource that is associated with an online entity.
