explain domain names
Domain names are like an address for a website. Similar to how you need an address to find a place, you need a domain name to find a website. For example, the domain name for Google is www.google.com. When someone types this into their browser, it takes them to the Google homepage. An analogy that might help you understand domain names is that they are like nicknames. For example, a person’s name might be John Smith, but everyone might call him Johnny. Similarly, an websites address might be a long string of numbers, but it will have a domain name such as www.google.com. Fun Fact: The first ever domain name was registered in 1985. It was Symbolics.com and it was registered by the Symbolics Computer Corporation.
