Domain Name Types

Domain Name: The internet is a network of computers connected to the global network. Every computer is connected and communicates with each other. To identify every computer it is named with a different IP address. However, it is difficult for the users to remember the IP address. To overcome this problem domain names are introduced. The domain name is the address of any website on the internet. The users type the domain name in the address bar to visit the website.

When you enter the domain name it sends a request to a global network of servers and then the server looks for the name server / DNS servers related to the domain. The server forwards the request to name servers. The name server is managed by the hosting company.

Domain Name System (DNS)

Domain name systems assign domain names and map domain names to Internet resources. Further DNS translates the domain names into IP addresses. Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) manages the Domain Name System (DNS). ICANN permits Domain Name Registrars to sell the domain name. Domain Name Registrars manage, renew, and transfer the domains to other registrars.
