A domain name is a string of text that maps to an alphanumeric IP address, used to access a website from client software. In plain English, a domain name is the text that a user types into a browser window to reach a particular website. For instance, the domain name for Google is ‘google.com’.
Domain Names are used for different purposes, including application-specific naming, addressing, and in various networking contexts to establish:– Simple identification of hostnames and hosts. Hostnames appear as an element in Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) for Internet resources, such as web sites.
It’s better to have a domain name that’s short and memorable. We recommend keeping your domain name under 15 characters. Longer domains are harder for your users to remember. Not to mention, users will also be more prone to entering typos with longer domain names which can lead to loss of traffic.
