Domain name

Definition by Web Hosting Ratings:

Domain name is an easy-to-remember address that can be translated by DNS into server's IP address.  Domain names are hierarchical.  Domain's suffix indicates which TLD (top level domain) it belongs to, for example .com, .gov, .org, .net, or .jp.  Recently ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) added several new TLDs, like .biz, .pro., and .museum.
