|101 On Domain Names |
Without a site name, websites are specified by an IP address. What is an IP address? It can be looked at an identifier that is used by computers or humans to identify the location regarding a server or website. However, for humans, an IP address, (which is expressed within the numerical format), may be hard to remember. This is why domain names were invented. With a domain name, a human can locate a website through more user-friendly words or phrases. Although numbers could be part of a domain name, they commonly do not comprise all it, like what is seen through use of an IP address.
