A domain name is the name of your website that corresponds to a numeric IP address. Without going into technical details, a domain name is the text that a user types into a browser window to access a certain website. For example, Google’s domain name is ‘google.com.’ A website’s actual address is a complex numerical IP address (e.g. 22.214.171.124), but thanks to DNS, users may type in human-friendly domain names and be directed to the websites they want. IP addresses are a set of numbers used by computers to identify each other. Humans, on the other hand, have a hard time remembering long strings of numbers. As a result, domain names were created and are now used to identify entities on the Internet instead of IP addresses. A domain name can be any combination of characters and numbers, and it can use various domain name extensions, such as .com, .net, and others.
