Question has no correct answer.

"http://wordpresstreehouse.com" is an example of a URL, not a domain name. Only "wordpresstreehouse.com" is a domain name, "http" is a protocol or scheme and "://" is a separator. The distinction is important because multiple protocols, such as http or ftp, may be used to access the same domain.

EDIT: Sorry, this might be the correct place for this comment.

Hi David,

I tried the question and I can assure you it does have a correct answer.

I'm saying the answer that is accepted is actually wrong. "http://wordpresstreehouse.com" is not a domain name.

David is right in a way because like he said wordpresstreehouse.com is the domain but having the protocol http makes it a url and when your supposed to chose an answer the one that is accepted as the correct one is a url not a domain name the correct way to put it would be without the protocol. But we could be wrong. It might also be recognized as a domain name.
