What is a Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) ?
Posted by Darren Radsmith on 16 May 2004 06:59 PM

A Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) is the complete host name to specify a computers location in the hierarchy of DNS.

For example there may be two groups within the DNS Made Easy organization; sales and marketing. So we could use the subdomains sales.dnsmadeeasy.com and marketing.dnsmadeeasy.com. If there was to be a system in the marketing group the FQDN for this computer would be computer1.marketing.dnsmadeeasy.com.

The host www.dnsmadeeasy.com is the FQDN for the webserver for the whole entire DNS Made Easy organization. Where as www.marketing.DNSMadeEasy.com could be the FQDN for the webserver for the marketing department inside of the DNS Made Easy organization.
