What Is Domain Name?

Domain Name

A Domain name is the name of your website which is used as an address where internet users can access your website. This is exactly like your physical address which is used to reach at your place.

These are easy-to-remember words that we can use to communicate to a DNS server the website we want to visit.

It is used for identifying IP addresses of your laptops, PC’s and much more. A domain is hosted with  hosting companies like Godaddy, Bluehost, Hostgator etc.

Domain names are kept according to your business need or whatever you like. But we suggest you to keep simple and professional names which will benefit you in future.

It can be any combination of letter and numbers, or all numbers which is famous amongst Chinese. Keep it simple and easy to remember.

How Domain Names Are Spelled​​ ?

Domain names are organised from right to left. Like you have a full name which consists of First Name and Last Name similarly they also have first name and last name.
The Top-Level-Domain or TLD or Parent Domain is to the right of domain name, then comes the Mid-level Domain which are in the middle and at last I.e to the left is “www” which stand for world wide web. All of this are combined and then spelled together as One Domain Name.

So let clear this with an example:

* Netflux is the mid-level domain

.co.in  or .in is the Top-level Domain

“www” is the Machine name    

World Wide .com is the most preferred TOP-level Domain and these day three letter mid-level domains are chosen and are very tough to get.
