A domain name is the address of a web site and will be shown in your address bar of the web site you are looking at on your computers monitor or screen. You should see 'http://www.admain.co.uk' in your browser at the moment. The proper name for this, 'URL', is an acronym for 'uniform registry locator'. Only one web site can have that name, in essence very similar to car number plates.
When you type a domain name into your address bar, the first thing your computer has to do is convert it into the I.P. address of the host name on the server. This happens by the your browser having a quick chat, maybe a cup of tea with the name server(just kidding about the cupof tea). So the browser says to the name server "I need to convert a domain into an I.P. address." The name server tells your browser what the I.P. address is and hey presto, the web site you wanted to look at appears on your screen.
If you are based in the U.K. ideally you should register a URL with the suffix .co.uk. So if your company name is 'Banner Advertising', you should try to get the domain www.banneradvertising.co.uk. You may find though, that there is another company in the U.K. with the same company name as yourself, who has already registered that URL - so you're stuck without a web site address. There are several options open to you at this point. You can put a hyphen in, to seperate the two words, www.banner-advertising.co.uk, or you could choose a different suffix.
The different suffixes' are usually country specific, for instance, a web site address with the ending .se, should be a Swedish web site. Like wise, a .ie should be an Irish web site, although anyone in the world can register these suffixes'. There are a couple of exceptions to this rule, namely, .com (originally set up for Americans, short for commercial, however, there is a .us for the Yanks now), .net and .org and the recently released .eu.
A generic URL is a web site address that is not a company name, but a
description of the service of what that company offers. The benefit in
this is mainly to do with search engines. The two main benefits are, if
an internet user is looking at the results of a keyword search in a
search engine, he can see exactly what that listing is offering just by a
quick glance of the domain name. The other, more complicated reason, is
to do with something called search engine spiders. The general
concensous is that it makes the site easier to find by the search
engines. This is explained thoroughly in the 'Search Engine' tab, on the
left hand side or at the top of the page.
