Domain names and their importance

A domain name is the name of a website that you type into a browser, such as www.e-wisdom.com.

This alpha-numeric name is translated into a series of numbers called an IP (Internet protocol) address, such as 123.456.789.012, which tells your computer’s Internet browser where to find the requested website.

The domain name is important because without it, people would have to remember the IP address for each site they wanted to visit.
