A domain name is a human-readable web address (e.g. "google.com") that points to an IP address.

Extensions[change | edit source]

See main article: URL

Domain names have extensions at the end of the URL. For example ".com", ".net" and ".org" are the most commonly used domain name extensions.

There are also country-specific domain name extensions. For example, the United Kingdom has the ".uk" domain extension and Japan has ".jp".
