A domain name is a unique name that identifies a website. Each website has a domain name that serves as an address, so internet users can access your website.
When you type in hostcompared.com that’s just an easier way of getting to my company’s website than remembering the IP address.
Domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers and must be unique. They are relatively cheap to register, though they must be renewed every year or every few years.
To purchase a domain name we’ll need to use a registrar, such as GoDaddy.
