What is a domain name?

Your domain name is a key part of your online address, and is what your visitors will use to find you easily. For example, Netregistry’s domain name is netregistry.com.au. Your domain name is unique to you; once you have registered it, nobody else can register the same one for as long as you continue to renew it.

Everything on the internet is located at a unique address which can be identified by a name or a number. Your computer finds different pages by looking them up using their unique numbers, but because these numbers would be hard to remember, the Domain Name System or DNS assigns a unique domain name to these numbers which we can use instead.
