What is a domain name?

Many people have seen domains, but do they understand what they are and how they can be used?

Let’s not get too geeky!

All computers and servers need to have an address. This is called an IP address and allows someone to find this machine. This normally take the format of four groups of numbers like 123.456.78.90

Remembering a series of numbers that could be 12 characters long is obvious quite difficult. A domain name is a user-friendly way of remembering the address of a machine and translates to an IP address.
