What are domain names?

A domain name is simply an address used to access a website. For example the domain name of this website is sapphireweb.com.au. Common domain names most people have heard of include google.com and facebook.com.

Put simply, a domain name is the address people type into their web browser to reach your website.

How much does a domain name cost?
