What is a Domain Name?

One of first things to consider when starting a new company is your website address.

A domain name is the address of your website that people type in the browser to visit your website. For example, wpbeginner.com.

Think of your website as a house and it’s address is your domain name!

The extension of your domain name also plays a part. For example we always recommend a .co.uk extension if your primary market is based in the UK.

IP addresses

The whole internet is a giant network of computers. Each computer is assigned a number which is called an IP address, and it looks like this:

66.249.66.1

Now, this is not an easy to remember address. Imagine if you had to remember this number when you wanted to visit a website.

In order to resolve this issue domain names were invented.
