What's in a Domain Name?
Domain names. We have all heard of them, but what are they exactly and where do they come from?
A domain name is a human friendly interpretation of an IP (Internet Protocol) address or string of numbers such as 184.108.40.206. They function similar to phone numbers enabling computers connected to the internet to locate other website resources. In the same way a telephone directory ensures numbers connect successfully, domain names are organised by the Domain Name System (DNS). This system is responsible for matching up domain names with relevant IP strings.
