What is Domain Name:-
On the internet, if you want to access something on the internet, then the user must have an IP address of a particular website or another network resource. We cannot remember the IP address of every website so Paul Mockapetris invented the Domain Name System in 1983. Using the Domain Name System we don’t need to remember IP addresses, we just need to type domain names then the DNS server will automatically convert domain names to IP addresses.
How to choose a domain name:-
Your domain name should be unique. If you are targeting a particular country you should choose a domain name that ends with country code for e.g. if you want a target audience from India you should choose a domain www.example.in.
If you want to target a global audience you should go for domains like.com.
