What is a Domain Name?

What is a domain name ?

       Domain name is the first identification of a website. They work under the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS). The first thing that you notice for a website is its domain name. So if they are simple, short and meaningful to the content in the website you can easily remember them.

Now, how we recognize a domain name?

Consider if you are entering www.google.com or www.deal2host.com in your URL (address bar) then the domain name is either google or deal2host.

Domain names are organized in subordinate levels (sub domains) of the DNS root domain, which is nameless. The first level set of domain names are the top-level domains (TLD) which consists of two types named generic  top-level domains (gTLDs), such as the prominent domains comnet and org, and the country code top-level domains (ccTLDs).Second level and third level domain names are also there. Domain name registrars controls the domain name registration. A domain name registrar is an organization or commercial entity that manages the reservation of Internet domain names.

How Domain Names Are Spelled?

  • Domain names are organized from right to left, where right part contains general descriptors and to the left specific descriptors.
  • The parent domain (top level domains) is to far right of the domain name.Mid level domains are in the middle. The machine name, often “www”, is to the far left.
  • The different levels of domain names are separated by dots.

Remember, the domain name you choose is the first thing visitors see. It’s an extension of you and your website, so make sure to pick a good one!
