Domain name

Domain Name System, or DNS, is the friendly naming system for giving addresses to web servers and web pages. Somewhat like phone numbers, the domain name system gives every server a memorable and easy-to-spell address. Simultaneously, the domain names hide the really technical IP address which most viewers aren't interested in. Examples of a domain name would be:

  • Ebay.co.uk,
  • Wikipedia.org
  • CNN.com
  • Facebook.com

It should be remembered that the domain name is not the same as the URL. 

To be technically correct, a domain name is commonly part of the URL but a URL goes into much more detail than a domain name, providing much more information, including the specific page address, folder name, machine name, and protocol language.

A Domain Name is Not the Same as the IP Address.

 A domain name is only intended to be a friendly and memorable "nickname". The true technical address of a web host is its Internet Protocol Address or IP Address.
