We see domains as memorable names and also as easy to handle words. What is not usually seen these days are top-level domains like ‘.com.’
“Domains” have always existed, but their form has evolved in the digital age of Internet and website connectivity via domain name system or DNS.

Domains represent the online presence and online records of communication. They are usually a group of one or more words that make up what people generally recognize as a complete and meaningful phrase.

As a specific name for identifying the site on the internet, just like with any other type of property, domains have been bought and sold to many different buyers at different points in time.

As we mentioned earlier, a domain is a space on the internet devoted to one company or one particular service. A domain name can be registered with various registries such as Network Solutions or GoDaddy. The registration process usually involves verification of ownership or intent to use the required services, by an approved agent or reseller for example.

A Domain Name System is responsible for helping a user find the corporation’s IP address and web server traces using instructions known as ‘DNS Records’. Without this DNS system operating correctly, it would not be possible to reach websites and other resources reliably by name; instead, you would need only IP addresses that are difficult to remember and type correctly.

Domain Name System or DNS is responsible for the connection between the website and the web hosting server. It helps utilize the Domain Names on websites through DNS.

DNS is a part of the globalized internet infrastructure, translating domain names into IP addresses by following domain name system rules. Domain (e.g., ‘www.azmitech.com’) translates to IP address (e.g., 34.214159), each with different sets of corresponding services and connection speeds based on related devices’ locations. (37)

The role of DNS is more than simply providing the tool to convert the second one to the first one: it is also a critical part of web security that stops unauthorized people from mapping out unrelated devices’ locations when they don’t have prior authorization
