    Q: How should I write an email address? Can I use CAPITAL LETTERS?
    How should I write an email address? Can I use CAPITAL LETTERS?

    A: Yes. You can write an email address with CAPITAL LETTERS or with small letters, or with a mixture of the two. It doesn't matter whether you use small letters or capital letters. For example, if someone tells you to write to GoodExample@ENGLISHCLUB.COM, it's okay to write to goodexample@englishclub.com. You can use all the 26 letters of the alphabet, plus hyphens (-), underscore (_) and full stop (.), plus of course the at sign (@). For example, all the following are possible (but of course, you must be sure that the email address exists):
    goodexample@englishclub.com
    GoodExample@ENGLISHCLUB.COM
    good-example@EnglishClub.com
    good.example@englishclub.com
    GOOD_EXAMPLE@ENGLISHCLUB.COM

    Q: What is a domain name?
    What is a domain name?

    A: A domain name is a unique name used to identify and locate computers on the Internet. A domain name provides an easy-to-remember Internet address, which computers translate into numeric IP (Internet Protocol) addresses used by the Internet. An IP address like 216.205.67.185 is good for computers but difficult for humans to remember. But humans can easily remember a domain name like englishclub.com in http://www.englishclub.com.
