|What is an Internet Domain Name?
Your domain name is your Internet identity or your online brand.
customers will remember this name and use it to find out about
you and your products and services. Since no two parties can ever
hold the same domain name simultaneously, your Internet
identity is totally unique.
Technically, a domain name is an addressing construct used for
identifying and locating computers on the Internet. While
computers use Internet Protocol (IP) numbers to locate each
other on the Internet, people find them hard to remember.
Therefore, domain names were developed to permit the use of
easily remembered words and phrases to identify Internet
For example, the domain name atekcanada.com represents the
company Atek Canada. When you type atekcanada.com in a web
browser or send e-mail to someone at atekcanada.com, the Domain
Name translates atekcanada.com into the IP numbers
used by the Internet and connects you to Atek Website.
