What is a domain name?

What Is A Domain Name? A domain name is your website name and the address where Internet users can access your website. It is also used for finding and identifying computers on the Internet. Computers use IP addresses, which are a series of number. However, it is difficult for humans to remember strings of numbers. Because of this, domain names were developed and used to identify entities on the Internet rather than using IP addresses.

A domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers, and it can be used in combination of the various domain name extensions, such as .co.za, .org.za, .com, .net and more .

The domain must be registered before you can use it. Every domain name is unique. No two websites can have the same domain name. If someone types in www.yourdomain.com, it will go to your website and no one else’s.

The price of a domain name typically runs between R90-R300 per year.
