What is a domain name?

A domain name is your address on the Internet. It is linked to a numerical address called an IP address (e.g., 211.225.471.38). The Internet uses Internet Protocol (IP) numbers to locate other computers. Internet users would typically have a hard time remembering these long strings of numbers to find sites. Domain names were developed to allow users to name these (IP) addresses with easy to remember names or phrases.
