What is a Domain Print

  • 2

A domain is an easy-to-remember name for finding and identifying computers on the Internet.

When visiting a website or sending an e-mail, our computer needs to know the location of the server where the page or the destination e-mail box is stored in order to be able to show the information we want to see (the content of the page or the e-mail delivery report).

The information on the location of these servers is on another server (called a name server) that ensures the indication of the correct address for the delivery of the requests sent by our computer to the Internet. This task is accomplished by converting the domain name indicated by our computer (eg www.registar.co.mz) into an IP address, which identifies the location of the computers on the Internet.
