Alias names are short, easy-to-remember names that are used on the Internet instead of long, hard-to-remember names

. Alias names can be complicated personal names, addresses, letter or number sequences. The alias names are assigned to the user ID and simplify the entries. For example, the alias name Klaus can be assigned to the user ID 4711224. Internet Service Providers (ISP) offer software

to support alias names. Alias names are not only used on the Internet, but are also supported by some computer operating systems.
