A domain name is a website’s name. Domain names are the URL address you type in to visit a website. It’s a unique identifier for a specific place on the Internet. You might not realize it, but you’re probably already very familiar with website domain names.

For example, the domain name for this website is floydhartford.com.

A website’s domain name is not to be confused with web hosting. The domain name is your website’s address and web hosting is the physical location where your website’s files live.

Connecting your domain name to your web hosting provides people a way to visit your website.
