What is a domain name?
A domain name is the name of a website. A domain name is an address where the website can be viewed by Internet users. IP addresses used by computers are a set of numbers. It is difficult for humans, however, to recall strings of numbers. For this purpose, domain names have been created and used instead of using IP addresses to define entities on the Internet. Simply put, if your website was a house, then your domain name will be its address.
Any combination of letters and numbers can be a domain name, and it can be used in conjunction with different domain name extensions, such as .com, .net, and more.
Before you can use it, the domain name must be licensed. Every domain name is distinct. No two websites can have a domain name that is the same. If anyone types your domain at www.yourdomain.com, they’ll go to your website and no one else’s.
A domain name, but it’s only part of the equation, is an essential part of having a website. You’ll also need content and a hosting service to store your files to launch a website so that they can be viewed on the internet. Note that having a domain doesn’t mean it also requires hosting.
