What Is A Domain Name?

You are here:

A domain name is the part of a website address after the “www”. So, in the website name “www.google.co.uk”, the domain name is “google.co.uk”.

In addition, the domain name is used as the suffix part of an e-mail address – i.e. help@google.co.uk, sales@google.co.uk etc.

Domain names are unique and are bought and sold as commodities on the Internet. When selecting a domain name to use for your business, relevancy, conciseness and memorability are key.
