An IP address is an identification number (usually 12 digits) for a given website. However, to make it easy for people to remember the address of a network of computers, domain names are created, with easy to remember names assigned to network computers, which people could use. These names will then be converted to the appropriate IP address by the local network computer and data will be forwarded to the computer with that IP address.
So, Domain name is essentially an alphabeticalname for an IP address.
