What is a domain name?

Domain names provide easy-to-remember, word-based addresses for using and accessing information on the Internet. These addresses are translated by the Domain Name System (DNS) into numeric IP addresses behind the scenes. For example, when you type www.namesecure.com into a Web browser, the Domain Name System knows to contact NameSecure's Web server at its numerical address 205.229.232.2. For more definitions of domain-related terms, please see our Glossary.
