What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is how your customers find you on the internet and what defines your unique presence on the web. In the same way that your street address enables anyone in the world to send a letter to your house, your domain name is a way by which visitors can find your website.

A domain name is a series of characters that form the main part of an internet address. It can contain letters, numbers and punctuation. They correspond to a series of numbers that act as routing addresses on the internet. Numbers aren't easy for us to remember so the internet uses domain names instead to help us. A complex network of independent systems map all IP addresses to their matched domain name, so that when you type www.cheekymonkeyhosting.co.nz into your Internet Browser you are directed to our server's IP address which is where our website lives.
