What is a domain name?

Un Answered

A domain name is a unique web address. A domain name is the text that a user types into a browser window to reach a particular website. For instance, the domain name for Google is ‘’. and ‘’. Users can connect to websites using domain names thanks to the DNS system.

When you register one, you reserve it so that no one else can register it. 

Domain Name Types

Different domain types can reveal more information about a site. Here are some of the most common types of domain names:

gTLD: Generic Top-Level Domain

gTLDs (generic top-level domains) are domain extensions that do not rely on a country code. .com and .net domains are great examples of gTLDs.

.com domains remain the most popular, with over 47% of all sites using them. While it’s commonly used for commercial businesses, other projects can utilize the .com TLD to improve website credibility.

A domain name is an essential part of having a website, but it's only part of the equation. In order to launch a website, you'll also need content and a hosting service to store your files so they can be accessed on the internet. Remember that owning a domain does not mean hosting is also included.
