What is a domain name?




A domain name is an alias of an IP number address. When one signs up to put a Web site on the Internet, he is given an Internet Protocol Number, or address. All the computers on the Internet can retrieve that site by pulling up that IP address. A domain name will allow you to have a World Wide Web address like www.yourname.com instead of having only a number such as 216.156.29.66 as it is difficult to remember an IP address whereas if I say a name which is aliased to that IP address it is far more convenient to remember than the numerical term.
