What is a domain name? How does it relate to the IP address?
- An IP (address) is the "internet protocol" address. It gives each device (computer) a string of unique identifying numbers so it can communicate with other devices on the internet. Each computer has an IPv4 address, but some computers are starting to use IPv6 addresses as well. The difference between an IPv4 address and an IPv6 address is there are many more possible combinations of numbers possible since the strings of numbers are longer.
This HowStuffWorks - http://computer.howstuffworks.com/internet/basics/question549.htm article gives information about the structure of IP addresses. It also gives information about IP classes and subnets.
What does HTML stand for?
- We learned all devices have IP addresses. So, how, you might ask, might one get from their homepage to a website? When you type in https://www.google.com/images, the part of the domain name that tells your computer what its IP address is “https://www.google.com”. The suffix (e.g. edu, gov, com, org) tells the page visitor what kind of site it is, and there is a limitied number of domain names (e.g. you can’t have 2 google.com’s). To sum up, a domain name consists of at least one IP address, but in a format that is more appealing to you than something like 10.0.0.1..
