    domain name is an alias for an IP address. Now what is an IP address?
    An IP address is a numeric code that signifies where to look through
    the Internet for content. An example of an IP address would be
    22.226.141.25. Rather than typing in a long and easily forgotten IP
    address, a domain name helps you by typing an easily remembered name
    to access the same site.

    For example, www.domainsatretail.com is a domain name that points to a
    specific IP address. People can remember a domain name such as
    www.domainsatretail.com much easier than they can a long numeric code.

    Domain names are everywhere as many use it everyday. Think of

    Actually, a domain name gives YOU the exclusive right to use that
    name.
    Any number of domain names can reside on one IP. And no, you don't
    need a domain name. All you need is a dedicated IP that no one else
    shares.

    BTW, ICANN, is the keeper of records in the USA. If the domain name
    seller isn't on their list of approved sellers, best check them out
    before you buy.
