What on Earth is a Domain Name?

What on Earth is a Domain Name?

A lot of people get confused when the subject of websites and domain names comes up. A common belief is that a domain name is irrevocably bound to a website - this is not the case. But let me start with the basics.

According to the Collins English Dictionary, a website is “a group of connected pages on the World Wide Web containing information on a particular subject.” The same source defines a domain name as “a unique name, corresponding to one or more numeric IP addresses, used to identify a particular web page or set of web pages on the internet.”

So, your website is a collection of pages with information - your home page, your “about us” page, your “contact us” page and so on. Your domain name is the address for your website -, for instance. You need both to have a presence on the internet.
