What is a domain name?

Domains

Domain name is the unique address on the Internet, which is most often written in the address bar of the browser.

From a technical point of view, the main function of the domain is to replace the complex number of IP addresses assigned to computers on the Internet. You better remember vas-hosting.cz than eg 46.234.101.21.

Who manages domains?

Good question. Each domain is provided by the so-called Central Registry, which is responsible for the .tld.

For .COM .ORG .INFO and new TLDs it´s ICANN

For .CZ it´s CZ.NIC

For .SK its SK.NIC

and so on.

What do I need a domain for?

If you do business on the Internet or have corporate systems and you need to access them from the Internet, you can not do without a domain name.

A domain can run webhosting on which you will have web presentation and emails.

You can only order e-mail hosting to your domain, so you can have email name@firemninazev.cz and communicate with customers or partners like a professional from your own domain.

If you have a virtual server and a hosting for domai-name.com, so that it can be seen on the Internet, it is necessary to have registered domain-name.com.
