A domain is the identity of your website. It is the address at which your users will find you. Essentially, it is the address that you type into a website browser address bar, to get to a website. Every computer has a unique IP address, and so does the server that runs your website. An IP address is a series of numbers separated by dots, for example 126.96.36.199. For us humans, however, remembering and using this IP address can be quite tough. An easier way to remember this sequence of numbers is to associate it with words. The words used to identify a website are known as the domain, and like the IP address, they’re unique to each website. So, the domain name “google.com” actually refers to the IP address “188.8.131.52″.
