INTERNET SPACE

In computing, an internet space defines a range of discrete addresses, each of which may correspond to a network host.
Internet spaces are created by combining enough uniquely identified qualifiers to make an address unambiguous. Components of an internet space may be the same but unless all are identical, the locations will be different.
An internet space usually provides (or allows) a partitioning to several regions according to mathematical structure it has. Some nested domains hierarchy appears in the case of directed ordered tree as for the Domain Name System or a directory structure. In the Internet the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) allocates ranges of IP addresses to various registries in order to enable them to each manage their parts of the global Internet address space.
The user-friendly interface of the Internet is based on a multi-layer global network system connecting hundreds of millions of computers worldwide. This system is comprised of multiple local and global networks serving private, public, business, academic and government purposes.
The Uniform resource locator, popular as URL, is the global web address of documents, including web pages or image files, and programs such as Java applets. It is aimed at identifying the location of a document or a program available on the web and specifies the mechanism for accessing it through a web browser.
Internet addresses can be linked to the objects, and the final scenes can be published on the Web. Internet space is used to upload your website on the internet or in simple words we can say that if a person or company wants his website to be accessed on the internet then he or she has to buy internet space on the internet this is called IP address and is unique for all.
Uses of addresses include, but are not limited to the following:
* Various kinds of network host addresses in computer networks;
* Uniform resource locators in the Internet.
Another common feature of internet spaces is mapping and translation, often forming numerous layers. This usually means that some higher-level address must be translated to lower-level ones in some way.
The Domain Name System maps its names to (and from) network-specific addresses (usually IP addresses), which in turn may be mapped to link layer network addresses via Address Resolution Protocol. Also, network address translation may occur on the edge of different IP spaces, such as a local area network and the Internet
