Computers connected to each other in an Internet network form a network. Each computer can communicate with other computers. Each computer is given an IP address to identify this communication. An IP address is a string of numbers that identifies a computer on an Internet network. An example IP address: 172.217.169.110
Her web sitesi aslında bir bilgisayarda çalışır ve IP adresi gerçek adresidir. Ancak IP adresleri girerek web sitelerini ziyaret etmek kullanıcı deneyimi açısından oldukça zor ve kullanışsızdır. Bunun için alan adları icat edildi. Bir web sitesini ziyaret etmek için IP adreslerini girmek yerine alan adını girerek erişebilmemiz sağlandı. Örneğin : websiteseomarketing.com alan adını tarayıcı URL alanına girerek tüm cihazlardan web sitemize erişebilirsiniz.
