Domain Registration

Domain registration is the process of acquiring a unique web address (domain name) through a domain registrar. This user-friendly name serves as the online identity for a website and is associated with a specific top-level domain (TLD) like .com or .org. The registration is typically done on an annual basis, involves a registration fee, and requires providing contact information. Domain owners can manage settings through a registrar's control panel. It's crucial to renew registrations to maintain ownership, and some registrars offer privacy services to protect personal information in the public WHOIS database.

  1. Domain Name
    • A domain name is a user-friendly version of an IP address, which is a numerical label assigned to each device connected to a computer network. Domain names provide a way for people to remember and access websites without having to memorize numerical IP addresses.

  2. Domain Extensions (TLDs)
    • Top-Level Domains (TLDs) are the last segment of a domain name. Common TLDs include .com, .net, .org, and country-code TLDs like .us, .uk, or .de. Newer generic TLDs like .app, .blog, and .guru have also been introduced in recent years.

  3. Domain Registrars
    • Domain registration is typically done through domain registrars—companies authorized by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) or national authorities to sell domain names. Popular registrars include GoDaddy, Namecheap, and Google Domains.
