Domain Names: Registration, Maintain and Monitor

Kathy Stewart | amdlawgroup.com

To introduce one to domain names and domain registration, one must begin with a basic understanding of the World Wide Web, in particular websites. Every computer on the Internet has an Internet protocol or IP address, which is a unique string of four numbers separated by periods, such as 165.166.0.2. Since remembering the IP address of Websites would be nearly impossible, a domain name system was created to replace the length of IP address thereby assigning a unique name to each numeric IP address. A domain name is therefore the unique name given to that particular website or IP address.
