What is a domain?

Domains, Web Design | 0 comments

A web domain is the unique name given to an Internet portal on the Internet. This name identifies a specific website without there being two or more websites that share the same domain name. In this Eveo inc situation, our web domain would be eveoinc.net. If you want to acquire a web domain, you can do it in multiple platforms,…

Domains are used to access a web page without having to remember the IP address where the server information is located.

When we type eveoinc.net in the browser to access the web, the DNS is responsible for translating the web domain to the correct IP address.

This translation is done in order to better remember the address of a website, since a domain name is more identifiable than a numeric string and thus help to make navigation easier.

 What is a domain and how does it work?

A web domain is the unique name given to an Internet portal on the Internet.
This name identifies a specific website without there being two or more websites that share the same domain name. In this Eveo inc situation, our web domain would be eveoinc.net. If you want to acquire a web domain, you can do it in multiple platforms, contact us to give you free advice.

Parts of a domain

A web domain is composed of two parts. The first part called domain name is the name we want to give to our website, the second part called domain extension refers to a geographical location such as .es (Spain), .mx (Mexico), etc., or to a specific web type such as .org (organizations), .net (technological).

Domain name: Eveoinc
Domain extension: .net

How do domains work?

Domains are used to access a web page without having to remember the IP address where the server information is located.

When we type eveoinc.net in the browser to access the web, the DNS is responsible for translating the web domain to the correct IP address.

This translation is done in order to better remember the address of a website, since a domain name is more identifiable than a numeric string and thus help to make navigation easier.

Domain types

TLDs: Top Level Domains

The domain scenarios are separated by dots and start counting from right to left, and the domain name must be differentiated from the extensions. The TLD is the first level, that which is to the right of the dot, and in general the first level extensions have been differentiated between generic and territorial (gTLD and ccTLD).

A few years ago there were also the sponsored ones (sTLDs), etc. Top level domains are those with top level extensions, either generic or ccTLD (gTLD and ccTLD). Since a few years there are also the sponsored ones (sTLD), etc.

Top level domains are those with top level extensions, whether generic or ccTLD.

In a top level domain or TLD, the extension is the first level and the domain name is the second level. Then there are extensions such as .com.es which are extensions of two scenarios (1st and 2nd) but which give rise to third level domains, because the domain name is at the third level of the domain.

gTLD: Generic Top-Level Domain

The gTLDs are the generic top level domains, and in this group we can find the most popular and recurrent extensions that can be registered, such as .com, .net, .org, etc.

The extensions of the gTLDs in their beginnings were directed to the construction of a type of web specifically, among other things the .org for organizations, .net for technological companies, or .edu for educational organizations.

This orientation currently has a more anecdotal character, since the use of extensions such as .com has become popular for all kinds of projects and only sometimes follows the relationship between the extension and its original purpose. In 2011 ICANN started to accept novel domain extensions with which, among other things, some companies and organizations got their own domain extension such as .Google, .oracle, .lawyer, .academy, etc. In addition, new gTLDs were created for very specific geographic areas (GeoTLDs) such as .paris, .berlin, or .barcelona; or for specific sectors such as .shop or .online.

ccTLD: Country Code Top-Level Domain

The ccTLDs are the top level domains territorial, and they are oriented to a special geographic space. Some of them are .es, .fr, .jp, etc. These domains are oriented to a territory and not precisely to a language. As an example of a territorial domain we would have the extensions that correspond to Spain (.es), Mexico (.mx) or France (.fr).

sTLD

sTLDs or sponsored top-level domains are domains oriented to a special organization or area. This kind of domains are not managed by ICANN, but their administration was ceded to private organizations. Examples of sTLDs are .travel (sponsored by Tralliance Corporation), .tel (sponsored by TelNic Ltd) or .aero (sponsored by SITA).

Third level domains

Another less common type of extension is the second level extension. These domains are formed by the sum of two extensions, one from a gTLD and the other from a ccTLD, giving rise to third level domains. A sample case of a second-level domain extension would be .com.es, .org.uk, .com.mx, .gob.ar, etc.

Subdomains

The subdomains are domains that we create from our own domain. In the situation of eveoinc.net a subdomain would be academy.eveoinc.net. This kind of domains are mainly useful for testing or in the situation of having a generic domain like .com for the global web, and then numerous subdomains for the territorial webs like es.dominio.com, uk.dominio.com, de.dominio.com, etc.
