What is Web Domain and How to Buy a Domain Name

What is Web Domain

Every website has a unique address called Internet Protocol(IP) address. The IP address like 207.97.195.109. So this IP address is used to navigate to that website. It is difficult to remember the IP address of each website. To solve this issue we use web domain names. So we can replace the IP address 207.97.195.109 with a domain name like www.websitename.com Here the domain name easy to remember and better for branding. We already told the IP address is unique. similarly, the domain name is also unique. For example, www.amazon.com is the domain name of the Amazon E-Commerce website. Again domain name like www.amazon.com is not possible to buy.
