A domain is simply a tool to make the Internet user friendly.
Computers communicate via a TCP/IP protocol which locates computers by identifying them with an IP address (eg 196.189..0.1). To visit another computer on the Internet, your local computer needs to know the remote computers IP address so that it can connect to it.
Domains use a DNS BIND protocol that enables users to type in easy to remember words, instead of hard to remember numbers.
Whenever you send an email or visit a website using a domain name, DNS is working in the background. The DNS system is basically a large distributed database that adheres to a basic set of fundamental rules defined by the Berkeley University in the USA, when the Internet was ‘born’. These rules are constantly under revision and are called RFC’s.
Technically a domain only has to do one thing; RESOLVE. When using a domain name, it will attempt to find it’s way to the IP address using DNS BIND. This is done by firstly connecting to a ‘resolver’ box, normally hosted by an ISP. The ‘resolver’ box then queries the root zone files, reading the domain from right to left.
