Domain name is the address of your website that people type in the browser URL bar to visit your website.

In simple terms, if your website was a house, then your domain name will be its plot number.


Take note: the www is not part of the domain name. it’s just

The www is called a Protocol. There are many other protocols.

  • http
  • https
  • ftp
  • and many more

Protocols are Languages/rules/instructions that computers use when they talk to each other. They don’t understand engligh, they don’t understand twi.

Another thing worthy of note is: Having plot number does not mean you have a house. In same vain, having domain name does not mean you have a website. You have to build the website on the domain name. Just like you will build the house on the plot of land.
