Domain Names and IP Addresses
The domain name functions as a link to the IP address.
Links do not contain actual information, but they do point to the place where the IP address information resides.
It is convenient to think of IP addresses as the actual code and the domain name as a nickname for that code.
Is domain the same as IP address?
10.230 could be an IP address. Ip Address is basically a string of numbers, whereas domain is the name of the website. A computer/server identifies each domain by the IP address. Each domain is mapped to an Ip.
What is the relationship between domain names and IP addresses?
The domain name is the address people type in their web browser to get to your web site. The domain name then points to the “real” address that contains your web site. The “real” address is called the IP address and is a series of numbers, such as 123.23.
Why do we use domain names instead of IP addresses?
Domain names are easier to remember for people than numbers. Domain names provide a lookup service; a phone book, so to speak. IP addresses can be shared with multiple domain names, where the domain name tells the server what resource to use.
How are urls assigned to IP addresses?
When a domain name is created and assigned to a server, it is given an IP address that corresponds specifically to its URL. If you can find the IP address of a URL, you can access that website by typing the IP address directly into your web browser. The number in brackets is the IP address of the URL.
