A domain name is a unique alphanumeric string that serves as a digital address, delineating a sphere of administrative autonomy, authority, or control within the vast expanse of the Internet. Domain names play a pivotal role in various networking scenarios and serve as identifiers for specific applications and addressing purposes.
Broadly, a domain name serves two primary functions:
1. Network Domain Identification: It represents a specific network domain or area of the Internet. For example, "example.com" signifies a particular space on the web.
2. Internet Resource Representation: It can denote an Internet Protocol (IP) resource. This resource might be a personal computer used to connect to the Internet, a server computer hosting a website, or the website itself, along with any other services accessible via the Internet.

As of 2017, a staggering 330.6 million domain names had been registered, highlighting the significant role they play in shaping the digital landscape and online presence of individuals, businesses, and organizations worldwide.

Domain names play a vital role in identifying Internet resources, including computers, networks, and services, using text-based labels that are more user-friendly and easier to remember than the numerical addresses utilized in Internet protocols. A single domain name can represent entire sets of these resources or individual instances of them. Specifically, individual computers on the Internet utilize domain names as host identifiers, often referred to as hostnames.

The term "hostname" also pertains to the leaf labels within the domain name system, typically without any additional subordinate domain name layers. Hostnames are prominently featured in Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) for Internet resources such as websites, as seen in examples like "en.example.com." These hostnames are an integral component of URLs, facilitating easy navigation and access to online content.

The practice of using a simple memorable abstraction of a host's numerical address on a computer network dates back to the ARPANET era, before the advent of today's commercial Internet. In the early network, each computer on the network retrieved the hosts file (host.txt) from a computer at SRI (now SRI International),[5][6] which mapped computer hostnames to numerical addresses. The rapid growth of the network made it impossible to maintain a centrally organized hostname registry and in 1983 the Domain Name System was introduced on the ARPANET and published by the Internet Engineering Task Force as RFC 882 and RFC 883.

TLD, or Top Level Domain, is a part of a website address that comes just after the last point of the URL. For better understanding, the TLD would be the exact location of a company, its full address. Some examples of TLD are . info, . com, . us, . co among others. Obviously, it is not on a random domain, its goal is to carry out a sort of ranking of the site. That is, a commercial site whose top-level Domain is . com is reporting that it is a commercial site. As an example we have Wordpress.com, which is a commercial site, while Wordpress.org is a non-profit version of the group.
