What Is A Domain Name?

A domain name is composed of name and two or three-letter extension separated by a period. The extension could be .com, .net, .org, .edu, .fr, .uk, etc. There is an extension for every country but .com is most common.

A domain refers to a device on the Internet. This device will be identified to your computer by its IP address. An IP address has a numerical format such as 198.158.1.1 since these are not handy for people to use or remember they are translated into domain names by the DNS (domain name server)

What about the www.?

How does the www. affect the dns versus the non www. version? Any difference?

There is no difference,

There is no difference, however you should be consistent. You can also change them all to be this same using canonical URL’s
