Domains: What is a domain name?
Domain names are the familiar, easy to remember names for computers on the Internet (such as yahoo.com). Domain names are used generally as a convenient way of locating information and reaching others on the Internet.

The .com, .info, .name, .net, and .org domain name endings are open and unrestricted. Though, traditionally, names in .net have been used by organizations involved in Internet infrastructure activities and .org is frequently used by noncommercial organizations.

Two letter domains, such as .uk, .de and .jp are called country code top level domains and correspond to a country, territory, or other geographic location. The rules and policies for registering domain names in the country code levels vary significantly and some are reserved for use by citizens of the corresponding country.
