What is a Domain Name?

Many people are unsure what a domain name is. Simply put, a domain name is the internet address of your website. A domain name gives your website a completely unique but easy to remember identity that allow visitors to easily find you. Choosing the right domain name is an essential part of your companies success. Click here to read through some tips on choosing the right name and the impact it can have on your business.

Structure of a Domain Name

A domain name is made up of two parts; a second-level domain (SLD) and a top-level-domain (TLD). The SLD is the portion of the domain that is immediately to the left of the dot and the domain extension. This typically refers to the name of the business or organization that owns the domain name. For example: In BuyDomains.com, BuyDomains is the SLD.

The TLD (also known the extension) is the last part of the domain name and are the letters immediately following the final dot. There are thousands of different TLD's available, but some of the most common are .com, .net and .org. New TLD's are always popping up, leaving businesses and individuals a variety of options when looking to make an online presence.
