What is a domain name?
If you have ever started a blog you will have heard the term domain name. To put it simply and understandably, a domain name is the name or URL of your website.
Computers usually use an IP address to identify a website. But IP address (22.214.171.124) is difficult for humans to recognize and hence this domain name should be human understandable.
Every website on the Internet has a domain name and no two websites have the same domain name. That means each website domain name is different or unique.
If you create a blog using free platforms, your domain name will come with an extension. For example, if you have created a website or blog in Blogger, your blog (URL) URL will have .blogspot.com at the end.
There are many disadvantages of having such extensions at the end.
