Definition of A Domain Name
A domain name is an essential for a website. This is the human-readable address of your site, for example, www.gadgetsright.com, www.babieskits.com, www.gadgetswright.com, without one, your website would just be found by a string of numbers representing the computer.

www.: This indicates that it is a web address, though this is optional, but I prefer it.
Gadgetsright: This is the main part of the domain, usually representing a company or organization name
.com: This refers to the domain suffix. The suffix could be in various form, such as .com, .edu, .org, .net and so on.
