What is a domain name?
A domain name is something we hear mentioned often, but what is it and what does it do?
How did we end up using domain names?
Before domain names were around, we used IP addresses to access a website. An IP address (an acronym for Internet Protocol) is a long string of numbers that typically looks like this: 188.8.131.52. Each website was assigned a unique IP address. As the internet grew, it became impossible to remember all these numbers. That’s when domain names were invented - making accessing websites more straightforward and provide a user-friendly way to find what you're after.
