What Is A Domain Name And Where To Register?

IP addressIP AddressA domain name is an alias for an IP address. Now what is an IP address? An IP address is a numeric code that signifies where to look through the Internet for content. An example of an IP address would be 22.226.141.25. Rather than typing in a long and easily forgotten IP address, a domain name helps you by typing an easily remembered name to access the same site.

For example, stormbiz.co.za is a domain name that points to a specific IP address. People can remember a domain name such as stormbiz.co.za much easier than they can a long numeric code.

Domain names are everywhere as many use it every day. Think of search sites. Google and Yahoo, both have corresponding domain names, www.google.com and www.yahoo.com.
