About Domain Names
A domain name can be likened to a house or business address. Sometimes this address is called a URL - which stands for Uniform Resource Locator. However, computers use addresses that are made up from numbers called IP addresses. These numbers are hard for us humans to remember so we use domains to point to these addresses - think of it like a phone book - e.g. webcreationuk.com which is of course, much easier to remember!
When you register your domain name, its unique to you, and when someone enters it into a web browser they are taken directly to your webspace where your webpages are waiting.
Your homepage is like the entrance to your busines.
You'll also be able to have multiple email addresses that use the same domain name - again, they are unique to you/your business and you can also assign email adresses to each of your staff or to general addresses such as email@example.com
