What is a domain name?

Most of you visiting this site will skip this part, however, if i’ve learnt anything in life it’s not to assume.. so I’m going to start at the basics.

Everything that is found on the internet has an address, so when you try to find it your computer knows where to look. The address is actually specified by numbers, but as we are not that great at remembering reams and reams of numbers, letters were substituted for these numbers.

If you want to go more indepth Wiki is a good resource for this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name
