A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority, or control on the Internet. Domain names are used in various networking contexts and for application-specific naming and addressing purposes
In general, a domain name identifies a network domain, or it represents an Internet Protocol (IP) resource, such as a personal computer used to access the Internet, a server computer hosting a web site, or the web site itself or any other service communicated via the Internet
In 2017, 330.6 million domain names had been registered. A domain name may represent entire collections of resources or individual instances. Individual Internet host computers use domain names as host identifiers, also called hostnames
The term hostname is also used for the leaf labels in the domain name system, usually without further subordinate domain name space. Hostnames appear as a component in Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) for Internet resources such as web sites (e.g., en.wikipedia.org). Domain names are also used as simple identification labels to indicate control of a resource
For example, an administrator of the domain example.com could label the domain’s email server as mail.example.com. This use of domain names is frequently criticized for introducing security risks, as exploiters can spoof or hijack DNS information to direct users to spoofed or malicious web sites
In addition, domain names can be used in a DNS blackhole attack, whereby an attacker replaces the real DNS information for a domain with attacker-controlled DNS servers in order to direct users to a specific site or resource that the attacker wants those users to believe is legitimate. 1
