What is a domain name?

A domain name is a unique tag that identifies you to other computers connected to 
the Internet. Every domain name represents a set of numbers called an IP address. 
For example, SmartlabSoftwareHosting’s IP address is So, you could type that number 
into your web browser’s address bar, or simply type ‘SmartlabSoftwareHosting.com’. Either entry will 
take you to our website.

Your domain name acts as your calling card on the web, since you can choose a name 
that represents your business, your family name, or anything else that can be 
remembered easily and associated with you. If you add WebMail to your 
hosting package, you’ll be able to send and receive e-mail with your domain name as 
the address.
