Good Day! Hello there friends! Welcome back to a digital quick learning session Our topics for today is about the meaning of Domain Name Have you heard about it? What really is Domain Name? Is it a place or territory owned by a kingdom from a TV series that just recently ended? In order for us to easily remember let’s just focus on the term “Name” We are using names to determine or to easily remember a certain identity For example, our Phone Book app on our Smart Phones, We are naming the phone numbers for us to easily find them to make a call Well, how is this connected to Domain Names? In web hosting, each website uses an IP Address to connect and communicate with different servers and computers The IP Address or Internet Protocol Address consists of complex combinations of unique numbers for a certain website If we compare it to one another, the IP Address is equivalent to the Phone Number while the Name is equivalent to the Domain Name And the Phone Book app is equivalent to the Domain Name System who manages, organize and translates the IP address into a name that is easy to remember As with our names the Domain Name also consists of different parts It is always arranged from right to left The last name or surname is called TLD or Top-Level Domains The name or first name is called Mid-Level Domains While the title is called Machine Name or Host Name Prefix For websites that are using Web Servers it usually www for World Wide Web Hold on for a sec what if you had two names?
