What is a domain name?

A domain name is the address of a Web site; it corresponds to an IP address which indicates where the Web site hosting resides. Since people find IP addresses difficult to remember, a Domain Name System was developed to enable the labeling and remember Web site addresses. Examples of domain names are "bell.ca" and "canada.ca".
