Domain Name

This is the address or URL of a particular website. For example, is the domain name for the Google search engine. The domain name is the text name that covers up the numeric IP address of a computer that is hooked up to the Internet.

Domain names make the World Wide Web more user-friendly. Instead of having to remember a string of numbers, we can remember the name of the website.

Registering a domain name for an online venture can cost as little as $8. Website domain names are registered to prevent people from using the same name for their website. There are several different companies that allow you to register a website and many of these companies offer hosting packages as well.
