What's in a Domain

A domain name usually consists of two or three parts. The Top Level Domain (TLD) and second and third level domains. In the domain example.com, 'com' is the TLD and 'example' is the second level.

The domain name corresponds directly to a record in a Name Server, a special web server with a database of domain names. When a user requests a web page, the domain name is looked up in the name server which returns the IP address of the web server the domain name points at.

This allows the user to easily remember a name instead of an obscure string like
"197.2.56.187/big-red/public-html/x/y/z/your-site"

Commercial sites often use 'com' as the TLD, organizations use 'org', and networks 'net'. When you register a domain, you'll be required to specify the TLD the domain name is associated with, such as 'example.com'

Domain Management: $25.00 per request.
