A domain name is a series of characters that resolve (through the DNS) to an IP address. A domain name generally consists of a word, followed by a dot (.), followed by a TLD (like “com”), for example, “iGoldrush.com”. It is interesting to note that regardless of the server on which your domain name or website resides, a domain name is NOT case-sensitive, which means that you can type IGOLDRUSH.COM or igoldrush.com into your browser and always reach the same place. That is because DNS is not case-sensitive, unlike how certain web servers might be. That’s a very simplistic description of a domain name.
