What is Domain 2

domain

A domain Serves a website as an Internet address that can be expressed in words using the Domain Name System (DNS). Instead of using the IP address, which is often difficult to remember, users can go to a website using the domain name, as names are easier to remember than long strings of numbers. The IP address consists of various numbers and periods such as 46.4.199.140.

The structure of a domain

The domain reads from right to left, starting with the Top level domain, short TLD. The TLD deals with the geographical allocation (e.g. “de” for Germany) or the commercial (e.g. “com”) or non-commercial (e.g. “org”) intentions of an organization.

In front of the TLD is the Second level domain, the specific name of the website (e.g. "online marketing"). "Www." (World Wide Web) introduces every domain on the Internet. The Third level domain denoted by prefixes subdomains. For example "en.exampledomain.com" for the English version of a page. The domain is part of the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) of an HTML (HyperText Markup Language) page. When entering a name in the browser, the Domain Name System (DNS) converts the name into a domain. The name servers (NS) of the Domain Name System convert the domain into an IP address.

The German Network Information Center (DNIC) in Frankfurt is responsible for all domain addresses with the German country code “.de” in Germany. The central organization registers and assigns these domain addresses. A domain is unique worldwide, but the second-level domain can also appear with another top-level domain. For example, in addition to www.onlinemarketing.de, the domains with other top-level domains such as .org or .com may be available.
