What Is A Domain Name?

A domain name is a string of text or numbers that map to a numeric IP address, used to access a website from a client such as Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. Put simply, a domain name is the text that a user types into a browser windows to reach a particular website. For instance, the domain name for Falls Technology Group, LLC is [fallstech.group]


Domain Names can have a number of different purposes, from providing a link to a website to routing traffic for an application. The URL that composes your domain name can be compared to the address of a building, and can be used much the same way.
