Domain Names

The domain name system is among the most familiar and most frequently litigated aspects of the Internet. It is a hierarchical system for naming computers so that they can be found on the World Wide Web[1]. At the Internet’s inception, each computer was centrally numbered so it will be identified. As more computers joined the network, it became increasingly difficult to allocate numbers for each computer on the network[2]. Hence, the development of the IP address class system in which addresses were subdivided into fixed structures so that a range of addresses could be allocate. In order to permit greater flexibility on the matter when changes were introduced in the records associated with an individual identity, it was decided to introduce the use of domains name that would correspond to the Internet Protocol addresses.
