When we talk about domain name, we are basically referring to an address
of a web site that is primarily intended for an easy and quick
identification. Speaking of these user-friendly addresses for web sites,
these help connect both computers and people on the internet.

Given such fact, it is interesting to know that the domain name is
understood as string of letters or numbers that is used to describe an IP
address. This is the primary function of the domain name in the field of
the internet. So, since the domain name and IP address are somewhat
connected, I will be using the term “domain name IP address” in this
article’s sense. So please bear with me.

Ah, but what is a domain name IP address? Or, an IP address in general?
For your information, the acronym IP stands for Internet Protocol. This
is so called as domain name IP address for the reason that this is the
numeric address of any domain on the internet. As it is commonly noted,
domain name IP addresses are much similar with telephone numbers. I am
sure that you know that there is a common name listed in the phonebook
that is associated with a long string of numerals pertaining to a
specific telephone.

Aside from that, it is also interesting to know that speaking of the
domain name IP addresses; others noted that the domain name IP addresses
are like the reference numbers that are applied to categorize the books
in a library. As the library codes apply for you to know the title of a
book to find in the library, the domain name IP addresses also function
somewhat that way.

Essentially, a domain name IP address is a set of four numbers that are
divided by dots. In particular, the domain name IP address looks like
203.23.56.166, and each one of these numbers can be between 1 and 255.
Just like the mentioned function of the telephone numbers and the
reference numbers in the library, the domain name IP address is said to
be that important in the internet. For a computer machine to be able to
be located by the other computers on the internet, it is important that
it must have its own domain name IP address that is distinct than the
others.

The primary intention for creating the system of domain name IP address
is for the people to connect to other computers on the internet by just
applying an easy to remember name instead of a particular IP address. So
as result, it is therefore important that the domain name must have
matching IP address for it to function correctly. This is also one of the
best explanations that show how the domain name and IP address are
connected. This explanation alone led to the association between the two
and thus being identified as a domain name IP address.
With the domain name IP address, you have the freedom to type either the
domain name or the IP address into a web browser and you will definitely
see the same page. It is for the reason that when you type a domain name
into the web browser, the Internet Service Provider or ISP will then
search the associated IP address in their Domain Name System server. That
is how the domain name IP address works.
