URL stands for Universal Resource Locator. Put simply, it is a Web site address, also called a domain name. For example, this site's domain name is www.firewebsitehosting.com
WHY DO I NEED A DOMAIN NAME OR SUBDOMAIN?
Your Web site will be located on the World Wide Web (WWW) for the public to access via the Internet. Every Web site requires an address. A domain or subdomain is the address to your Web site. Users type the address in the location of their browser to get to your site. As part of our design packages, we will promote and market your address so your customers find out about it.

Domain names ending with .com, .net or .org can be registered through many different companies known as "registrars".
