So, (Uniform Resource Locator) is the address to a World Wide Web page. It consists of two components: Protocol identifier and Resource name.

Therefore, the Resource name for the example “https://localseocompany.net/” is ‘localseocompany.net’.
In order for computer networks and servers to talk to teach other, computers have to rely on the language which is made up of numbers and letters called an IP Address. Every device which can connect to the Internet has its own unique IP address which look like “126.96.36.199” or “3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf”. In order to navigate around the Internet, typing in your long IP address doesn’t seem like an ideal, or realistic, method to the average user. Hence why domain names were created. This allows you to hide your IP address with something more memorable. Consider it as the nickname to the IP. Usually containing the websites name and detailed information (https://localseocompany.net/) to help direct the user to the webpage. In other words, it is a set of directions to your website.
