A domain is very important so people can find your website easier. When a website is uploaded to a hosting server (see below) by default the website is assigned a unique number called an “IP Address”. This IP address is a series of 4 groups of numbers (for example that identifies the location of your website files on a server. What a domain does is assigns a name to that number for easier navigation (for example www.yahoo.com). Without a domain visitors would have to type in the IP address to navigate to your website; a number that is hard to remember compared to a website address.
