Any name registered in the DNS (Domain Name System) is a domain name.
A domain name represents an Internet Protocol (IP) resource, such as a PC used to access the Internet, a server computer hosting a website, or a website itself etc.
The first level of domain names are the TLDs (Top-Level Domains), such as com, org, net, eu, at etc. The second-level and third-level domain names are open for reservation by end-users who wish to connect local area networks to the Internet or run a website.
Example for the three levels: learnhowtoearn.siterubix.com
- com = first-level
- siterubix = second-level
- learnhowtoearn = third-level
The registration of these domain names is administered by a domain name registrars, such as SiteHosting, Godaddy, Hostgator or in case of WA SiteDomains.
