Domain Name Understanding (Portions of a Domain)

Domain Name Parts Understanding
When you design your own website you need mainly consider about two facts, Domain name and Web Hosting. Your site can be personal or a business no matter without those two facts you can't present your web site to your clients or fans.

A Domain Name is a unique for a site. In other word it is the address for your site. Just like your home address if somebody needs to find you then he needs to know your address, of course domain name is the path for your site. Unless anybody know your site no one will comes there. Even your site has good products or information.

By the way before guiding you to buying a domain name I thought to give you some useful information about the parts of domain name and why those parts are stand for.

Domain Name Rules:

A Domain cab be contain up to 67 characters and can includes the 26 letters of the English alphabet, numbers 0-9, and hyphens (-). Even the domain name can consist by more hyphens it cannot begin with a hyphen or end.

Http - Http stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol.

WWW - World Wide Web

Domain Name suffix (extensions):

Last portion of a domain name is called as suffix. This can be varying to site by site and depend on the purpose of the site.

.com - commercial business domain
.net - commercial network
.org - nonprofit organizations
.edu - educational institution
.gov - government agency
.mil - military

Also there are many additional domain name extensions there. biz, bz, info, tv, name and etc. In present biz and info domains are cheap rather than other types.

Also domain name extension can depend by the country, for Sri Lanka the name extension is .lk

Domain name can consist of two or more parts that are separate by dots. The rightmost label conveys the top-level domain of the left lable. Ex: blogspot.com comprises a sub domain of the com domain, and Tutorial-net.blogspot.com comprises a sub domain of the domain blogspot.com
