What is a domain name?

A domain name is the Internet address which you type in a browser to find and reach a company, business or another entity on the Internet. An example of a domain name is www.mydomain.com. Most people want to have a short domain name, corresponding to their activities. Therefore, most of the unique single-word domain names have already been taken. As a whole, there are over 112 million active domains only for .com, .net, .org, .info., biz, .us TLDs, 82 million of which are .com TLD alone. Every month there are over 420 thousand newly registered .com TLDs. You can have a free domain name registration with some of our hosting packages.

What is TLD / SLD / ccTLD / ccSLD?

TLD is short for top-level domain and it shows the last part of the domain name. For example in the domain name webthehost.com, the .com is the top-level domain. An SLD stands for a second-level domain and designates the word before the TLD. In the example above “webthehost” is the SLD. A ccTLD stands for a country-code top-level domain, examples are .us and .eu domains. A ccSLD is county-code second-level domain e.g. .co.uk, .org.uk, etc. A gTLD, or generic top-level domain, is used to describe domains not usually linked with a specific country e.g. .com, .net, .org, .info, .biz, .edu, .name, .gov, .int, .mil, .pro, .aero, .coop, .museum.

Why is my domain’s WHOIS information public?

WHOIS is a public database that contains the information to get in touch with all registered and active domains and their owners. ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) is the authority which binds all domain registrars to create newly registered domains and their contact information publicly available. This public information is best used when verifying a domain ownership or, for example, when the domain is transferred or is being investigated for illegal activities on the Internet such as copyright violations, etc.

What is Domain Privacy Protection?

When you register a domain, your private personal information including name, address, phone number, and email address is listed in the so-called WHOIS of the domain, which is publicly exist. The Domain Privacy Protection service legally replaces the WHOIS details, covering Administrative, Technical and Billing contacts of your domain’s WHOIS record with generic Domain Privacy Protected contact details. After purchasing a Domain Privacy Protection service you still own and run your domain. You can still sell, renew, transfer or change settings to your domain name anytime you desire.
