What is an email address?
Oh, how much time we spent in queues at the post office - it’s scary to remember. How long did the letter travel? Days, weeks, months ... Fortunately, the transfer of information with the advent of the Internet and e-mail now does not take so much time. I sent and voila - your letter is already at the other end of the globe in itself in an electronic box. It became clear with e-mail, but what is an e-mail address?

- The so-called "dog" or the separator sign @. "Dog" is the hallmark of the mail address - without it anywhere. This “dog” settled on the Internet in 1972 and remained so, becoming popular and recognizable. The @ sign in Russian sounds like "at." In the international character set, this sign is called "commercial" et.
- The name of the server that provides postal services. For example: yandex.ru, mail.ru, microsoft.com. The server name consists of a top-level domain (ru, com) and a lower level (yandex, mail, microsoft).
