Want to learn How Domains Work? Great, welcome to Black Albatross Media.com. This blog covers everything Domain related. From what is a Domain, to Who invented Domains? Why you need a Domain and Is Domains a safe investment?
Domains are virtual addresses. They lead people exactly to your location. Domains essentially work exactly like your address does. It gives you a location to be found online. The initial location is called an IP Address. An Internet Protocol address (IP address) is a numerical address assigned to everything connected to a computer network.
The first Domain registered was www.Symbolics.com on March 15, 1985.
If we only used IP Addresses then you’d have to remember every website you visit digital numbers. It’s much better to have a legible name like www.blackalbatrossmedia.com then (for example:) 22.214.171.1245 to remember. Domain names makes it possible to not remember the numerical IP Address and in most cases it’s why you never knew there was a such thing.
What makes Domains special? Everything. They are virtual real estate. Owning a Domain, allows you to have your own space on the internet, in which no one else has rights to. Like you have in your home.
