"The Beauty Of Domain Name"
What Is A Domain Name?
Even if you have never hosted a web site before, you have undoubtedly used domain names. Every time you use a web browser to visit a web site by name, such as yahoo.com or cnn.com, you are using domain names.
Domain names are organized hierarchically from right to left. The right-most portion of a domain name is called the top-level domain (TLD). The .com TLD is probably the most well known, but there are many others, such as .net, .org, .edu, and .mil. (Country codes, such as .us and .fr, are also TLDs.) When you register a domain name, you can choose which TLD to use (though some TLD’s, such as .edu and .gov, are restricted to certain types of organizations).
