Domain Name.

Q13. What do you understand by the term ‘domain name’?
Ans. Domain name is the third component of a URL, and represents the name of one or more computers that act as servers on the Internet. For example, in the URL, http://www.google.com, Google specifies the domain name. A large website, such as Google or Yahoo!, uses more than one computer and this entire group of computers acts as a single server. A domain name must be registered so that one domain name does not represent more than one server. Special administrative bodies, called domain registrars, register the domain names. After a domain name is registered with a domain registrar, the same domain name cannot be used by any other website.
