What is a Domain Name?

Domain name is a website address that you type in the browser's address bar to open any website. It has the following three components:

  1. Name - website name
  2. Separator - period or dot is the separator used in domain names
  3. Extension - generally it contains three letters like com. However, it can have different letters like co.uk.  

Example of the domain name is - webnots.com. Remember, the complete website URL you see in the browser's address bar may look https://www.webnots.com/. Here, HTTPS is the protocol, www is a subdomain and the / is added by the content management system. These components are not part of the domain name. You have to purchase a domain from registrars like GoDaddy for a specific period and continue the subscription continuously to keep under your ownership.
