What is a domain.

A Domain Name is an identification string that identifies a network domain or represents an internet protocol (IP) resource such as a personal computer used to access the internet, a server computer system hosting a website or several websites and any other service passed through the internet.

A domain name usually defines a monarchy of administrative autarchy, control and authority within the internet. Domains are formed through the rules and procedures of the domain name system (DNS) and any name registered in the DNS is considered as a domain name.

Anyone who wishes to own a website, whether a blog, an E-Commerce or institutional website must register a domain to be able to purchase hosting and have their web pages visible on the internet.

Domains names are registered by Domain Name Registrars who are licensed and registered to sell domain registration services to the public. These registrars may provide only domain registration services or both domain registration and web hosting services. However, most companies offer both services for the purpose of convenience.
