IP vs. Domain Name: Explain the difference between an IP address and a domain name. Use WMU's server as an example.

An IP name represents the address for an individual computer on the web. This is represented by the web address given when one opens an html document saved on their computer. However, these addresses cannot be accessed by others on different computers, which is why we have to submit our assignments to the WMU website before they can be viewed by others. A domain name is the name of a website on a server connected to the web, such as By submitting our assignments to this server, they can be viewed and graded. We submit assignments using the FTP program FileZilla.
