What is a Domain Name?

When we talked about website hosting, we mentioned that the host was like giving your website a home. Well, your domain name is the address to your home. Your domain name, or web address, is the unique name and identifier for your website. It allows people to quickly and easily locate your website and browse your pages. Additionally, no two names can be the same. Each has to be unique to the website it represents.
