Domain Name Glossary Terms
Terms that begin with D
Controlled by the world-wide orgainzation called ICANN, domain names are obtained on a first-come basis, and are used to identify your unique web site (For instance, www.yourname.com.) Most common are the suffixes: .com, .org, and .net. However there are a large number of new suffixes giving a lot more name options. A top level domain can be obtained by paying an annual registration fee to a domain registrar such as Register.com. Fees range from under $10 a year to $30 a year. Some web hosting providers such as iPowerweb.com offer a domain name as part of the monthly hosting fee.
