What is a domain name?
A domain name is the textual address or Uniform Resource Locator (URL) of a particular website. Each site has a numerical IP address that distinguishes it from every other site in the web. However, this numerical locator may be difficult to remember (i.e. 126.96.36.199) which is why a textual, easier-to-recall, name has been assigned to it (trademarkegypt.com). Given the fact that domain names must be unique and correspond only to one specific IP address, a user needs to register his or her domain name with an approved registrar. Once this has been done, the user has exclusive rights to that particular name
