Now let’s come to the discussion, Domain (Domain) is an English word meaning place or address which is used in the internet world. Basically, a domain name usually refers to the name of a website.
Suppose you set up a business and give it a nice and unique name so that people can easily understand what kind of service you want to provide. The next time people go to take your service, they will easily find your business through the name you have given. For example Prothom Alo, Pran, RFL, Tir, Jamuna, Bashundhara. These are basically the names of a business organization that we can easily understand what kind of services they provide and how people can easily find their address.
A domain is a name by which people will find the website of their choice. This domain name will uniquely identify your website and at the same time, everyone will recognize and access your website using this name.
Every website has a specific IP address. E.g. 22.214.171.124. It is usually difficult to remember a website with an IP address. So for the convenience of remembering, the domain name is used instead of the IP address. Domain names are also used to identify one or more computers on the Internet.
Let’s look at some uses of the domain name: https://www.google.com – https://www.youtube.com – https://www.facebook.com – Here we find Google, YouTube, and Facebook easily with domain names as it is usually difficult to remember the website with IP address.
The domain will not be with .com extension only. These are mainly used based on purpose. I hope you can understand by looking at the following examples. E.g.
- The .com (https://wordpress-755006-2549095.cloudwaysapps.com) extension is used for general work or business.
- The .org (https://www.wikipedia.org) extension is used for the organization.
- The .edu (https://www.harvard.edu) extension is used for educational institutions.
- The .gov (https://www.bluehouse.gov) extension is used for government-state institutions.
- The .info (http://www.bangladesh.info) extension is used for the information site.
- The .net (https://www.soundtrack.net) extension is used for networking sites.
All of the domains mentioned above are Top Level domains. If you want to use these on your website then you have to register or buy with money. The price of the domain varies depending on the provider. Usually, these domains are priced between Rs. 800-1200 for one year.
