Have you ever asked yourself, “What is a domain, anyway?” Well, take a look up there at the top of the screen. See that part at the top of your browser window in the URL bar? It’s the part that starts with “http://” in the address bar. The second part of the URL is the domain.

Let’s continue with a phone analogy. You’ve probably got a long list of contacts saved in your mobile phone. Each contact has a unique phone number. When you want to call someone, you usually click on the contact’s name rather than typing in the full phone number.

Domain names are just like a contact in your phone. Rather than typing a complicated set of numbers (the IP address) into your browser, you type in a domain name. That domain name is human-friendly and much easier to remember than an IP address. All domain names are connected to a unique IP address.
