What is a domain name?
It is the name that identifies a web site. (like: thepromall.com). It is unique and no two domains can have the same name. Here are some common domain extensions:
- .com is for “commercial” use and is the most widely used. Most businesses prefer a .com domain name because it the most recognized for having a business on the Internet.
- .net is for “network,” and is most commonly used by Internet service providers, Web-hosting companies or other businesses that are directly involved in the infrastructure of the Internet.
- .edu is for “education”, and is used for educational institutions.
- .org is for “organization,” and is used by non-profits organizations or associations.
- .name is the only domain extension specifically designed for personal use. It is commonly used for easy to remember e-mail addresses and personal web sites.
- .me extension was assigned to Montenegro as a country code after it became an independent nation in June 2006. However, the Montenegro government decided .ME would be operated as a generic name after considering the potential worldwide appeal for the extension.
