On the Internet, a domain name is an address where the Internet users can access your website, and it includes web addresses, email addresses, and the addresses of the Internet protocols. It is basically a shortcut to the server that hosts your website.
Without a domain name, one would have to enter the full IP address to visit a website. IP addresses are numerical labels and not very convenient for regular use.
A domain name has two main elements:
- The website’s name (g., Madanswer)
- The domain name extension (e.g., .com)
