Domain names are basically used in context of a web address to Internet hosts on the World Wide Web (www). Domain name is what internet user type in the address bar of a web browser to locate your website. It gives every Internet host a unique address which is easy to remember.
For Example: www.mtv.com, Here the first, www is the server name of the domain, the second element “Mtv” is the name of organization, entity or individual, and the last one ”.com” is the suffix which is the domain name extension. Among these three elements the second one is the most important element of the domain name.
