The importance of the domain name
Modern man can not imagine life without the Internet. Many people use it every day in various fields and activities. The Internet is very attractive and multifaceted, so many people decided to equip it as a platform for hosting their business. Today in the 21st century, a large number of sellers, using the Internet, make most of their business through the Internet! Companies that do not use e-commerce try to get into the Internet space as soon as possible and to achieve their business not only locally but also on a large scale, that is, through the Internet network.
Thus, if you are selling something, you naturally need to increase the number of customers so that a particular product is more in demand. The first thing to consider is the ideal choice of a domain name. The name will help you to tell about the product, about your activities and business. In the end, choosing a name can affect the performance of a business that you own. After all, a domain, in its essence, is the basis, the root of your online business! It is because of how well you picked it up that you will be able to carry out this or that activity.
Choose a domain name is not so easy! Developing a business plan, business ideas, marketing and other things is very important. But the choice of domains often remains on the sidelines, and very often they are not paid enough attention to. However, did you know that before ordering a domain, it is necessary that it conforms to certain standards. To do this, there are some issues that need special attention! We give them below:
- 1) Is the resource focused on one of the topics corresponding to the thematic areas? That is, does your theme fit into some kind of TLD?
- 2) Is this thematic area, or any other zone, limited to US jurisdiction? This is very important to consider, especially if you are planninga long-term cooperation with a domain registrar!
- 3) Is the scope of activity that you conduct in any country in the world limited?
History of origin .COM
The domain name .com is one of the first TLD (Top Level Domains) names. It appeared with the very implementation of the domain name registration system in Yavnar 1985. Also in this year, such TLD‘s appeared: .edu, .gov, .mil, .net, and others. The domain name .com immediately gained great popularity and became the largest top-level domain. From the very beginning, the domain was administered by the US Department of Defense, it was registered in the US state of Massachusetts. The first company to register this domain was Symbolics Inc. They produced computers and software. Today, having a site available with the .com domain name is not only a convenient and affordable factor, but also prestigious! Thanks to the .COM domain, your activity and activity on the site will become known to the whole world and reach a new level.
If we talk about .com, then originally in this zone it was planned to create .cor (corporations). This would help in using for registration by commercial organizations, but in the end the combination of letters turned out to be somewhat different.
For starters, this domain was intended as a large platform for locating your business, large IT projects and software. Now, this top-level domain is used in completely different values and has a very wide audience. Today it has a large number of sites registered – about 138 million! The popularity of .com domains has been unconditional and unchallenged for over 30 years. .Com domains provide the site and its owner with a power of attorney to the business, to the content that is located on it, and also help SEO, which is an important factor today for Internet space!
Place your website on .COM domain is very important and at the same time a serious factor! Be sure that your content and business will not go unnoticed. Therefore, you emphasize the seriousness of your intentions when using the .COM website.
Oldest means outdated?
Many people are interested in what the first sites were the first domains, how they were registered and what was the first domain zone all the same? The answer is obvious and very simple COM! .COM! .COM! The most popular domain of all the large number that is on the Internet today! We are pleased to provide you with a list of the oldest domains; want to draw your attention to the fact that absolutely all of them are .COM!
From March 15, 1985, the first domain was registered, it had the name “Symbolics.com“. This laid a bright start for a successful career domain. COM! In addition to .com, the same generic top-level domains without registration restrictions are .net, .org, .info, .biz and .name.
Great variety in use
There are today a lot of companies that are engaged in business ideas, extensions and innovations. A very important factor is that the fastest growing companies in the world choose precisely .com for their website and business expansion! Many non-commercial sites and networks today use .com names to take advantage of the com domain domain recognition as well as its rapidly growing popularity! What is interesting: at the very end of the 20th century there was such a period (from 1997 to 2002) when it became popular to include the suffixes .com in the name of companies, as well as in the name of the country! That is, if previously it was possible to meet the .com domain and this meant the TLD, then already since 1997 you can meet:
- .com.gr (Greece)
- .com.cn (China)
- .com.uk (UK)
- .com.jp (Japan)
During the first two years of existence of this zone (1985-1987), only 100 sites appeared. However, after 8 years, in 1995, more than 20 thousand sites appeared in this domain zone! If we talk about the popularity of sites that have in themselves. Com then by category: 95.9 million sites are registered and specialize in trade; 4.3 million specialize in entertainment; 3.1 million sites – various financial transactions; 1.8 sites – a different sports orientation.

Since we emphasized this earlier that the .com domain is very popular today, it was popular and early! For example, on May 15, 2000, this domain gained so much popularity, literally circling every corner of our land, that by that time all free three-character domains had already ended, and on November 4, 2007, the last four-letter domain .com was registered!
Domain .COM Research
Before you order something, you need to check whether this type of product is in stock, for what purpose it is used, whether it is occupied or is freely available. The domain registration procedure begins with this – analyzing a domain name and checking whether it is free or not! Today, a lot of .com domains are occupied, but unfortunately, they are not used. People acquire, not understanding further what to do with them, and it becomes sad. In one of the research institutes, Christopher Forno investigated the issue of employment of .com domains and derived his own statistics regarding domains and their use. We want to acquaint you with this study and emphasize once again the importance of using the .com domain to use it correctly!
This study helped to come to the following conclusions:
- GoDaddy is a registrar of 34% of all .com domain names. This is approximately 45 million domain names. In other words, more than 10% of all .com domain names place GoDaddy advertising pages. Although there are 1851 registrars in the sample, most of them are controlled by a smaller number of operators. For example, more than 1000 recorders are monitored only by DropCatch.com. 9 25% of domains have been registered in the last year.
- 2018 was a surge in .com domain registration The fact is that the .com domain has been serviced for 31 years, and only in 2018, as many as 25% of all .com domains were registered !!!
Of all the categories that today can be collected and identified (For example: Content, Advertising, For Sale, Gambling) on sites that the .com domain has
- Approximately 16 million domains do not have a web server (failed to connect or receive a valid response from port 80 or 443 for the top-level domain or the www subdomain)
- Empty – about 13 million domains (meaning the domain for which the web server responds to requests, but returns blank pages, 404th or unfilled templates)
- Error – approximately 8 million domains (the domain returned any type of error, whether it was an HTTP error or an error on the page, it falls into this category).
The total number of such domains is 37 million! This is a very large number of domains that are registered, which are active, but do not contain any information and are simply unused.
