Default What are domain names?

A domain name is a unique name that identifies a website. Each website has a domain name that serves as an address, which is used to access the website by its users.

Whenever you visit a website, the domain name appears in the address bar of the web browser. It is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control on the Internet. Domain names are formed by the rules Domain Name System (DNS). Any name registered in the DNS is a domain name.

As the foremost established domain, with a record of more than 15 years of reliability, .com invokes trust. It is where customers want to do business online.

.com is the global online standard, and that is why every Fortune 500 company and the world’s fastest-growing companies have a .com.
Since .com is powered by Verisign, you can trust that your domain name is backed by the same proven and industry-leading expertise that has kept .com and .net running with 100 per cent reliability for more than 15 years.

Helpful Info.

I would like to add that a domain name can have many extensions like .com, .net, .info, .org, .us, .in, .ca. etc.

My two cents

In layman's term, domain name is the name of your website to identify it and for domain propagation. A domain name points to nameservers which has IP addresses of the server on which your website contents are located!
