The Domain Name System (DNS) helps users to find their way around the Internet.
Every computer on the Internet has a unique address just like a telephone number which is a rather complicated string of numbers.
It is called its "IP address" (IP stands for "Internet Protocol").
But it is hard to remember everyone's IP address.
The DNS makes it easier by allowing a familiar string of letters (the "domain name") to be used instead of the arcane IP address.  
So instead of typing 207.44.172.47, you can type talou.net.
It is a "mnemonic" device that makes addresses easier to remember.

 

Importance of a Domain Name
There are a number of good reasons for having a domain name:
  • If you ever change your web host, your domain name goes with you. Your regular visitors or customers who knew your site name as www.yourcompany.com (for example) would not have to be informed about a change of URL. They would simply type your domain name and they'd be brought to your new site.
  • If you are a business, a domain name gives you credibility. Few people would be willing to do business with a company with a dubious URL like http://www.geocities.com/whatever/12345
  • If you get a domain name that describes your company's business or name, people can remember the name easily and can return to your site without having to consult their documents. In fact, if you get a good name that describe your product or service, you might even get people who were trying their luck by typing "www.yourproductname.com" in their browser.
  • If you want good sponsors (advertisers) for your website, a domain name is usually helpful. It tends to give your website an aura of respectability.
