Your domain name is your website address. It’s the address people type into their web browsers. Metaphorically speaking, if your website is your house, then your domain name is your house address.
For example, Google.com is a domain name. So are WordPress.org and WordPress.com.
There are two parts to a domain name. The first part is the name itself (Google) and the second part is the domain extension (.com).
For the name, it can be a combination of alphanumeric characters. This means that you’re not limited to using only letters for your domain name. If you want, you can use all numbers like 1234.com, or a combination of numbers and letters like abcd1234.com.
For the domain extension, you can choose from 280 extensions. There are generic top-level domain names like .com, .net, and .org. And then there are country code top-level domains like .us, .au. uk, .de.
