What Is a First Level Domain: Features, Varieties, Application

Domain registration is gaining great popularity in the Internet network. Today, more and more people are interested in creating their own personal blog, business, author’s page, online store etc. Internet space is a kind of “OPEN DOOR” to attract customers to your business. By selecting a suitable domain, as well as a Domain zone (to which this article is dedicated), you practically enable the client to find everything needs: whether it is an online store, a news site, or sections on interests (hobbies, sports, art, style and etc.)

The registration center for all domains, domain zones is called ICANN https://www.icann.org/

By maintaining the security and stability of domains, the ICANN registration center began operations in 1998 and continues to carry out these activities today. ICANN also manages the accreditation system for domain name registrars.

Domain is the address or name of your site. It consists of a specific set of characters (letters, numbers). It is necessary in order to distinguish between sites and find them on the Internet. The site name is assigned instead of a difficult-to-remember IP address. Each domain is unique; you cannot register two identical domains on the network. For example, hostry.com is the name of the site, or the domain name that has the right to one-time registration. For example, take the site «HOSTRY.COM»

COM is the top level of the domain, or “first level domain”

HOSTRY is a second level domain

FIRST LEVEL DOMAINS: WHAT IT IS?

Level one domains (TLD) are the first part of your domain name, to the right of the dot is .COM.INFO. ORG. Top-level domains are an indication of which section they belong to. They can be divided into many levels, and we will look at some of them

REGIONAL

REGIONAL – these are countries, unions, islands, and so on. They are oriented for people living in certain localities, for example: this type of zone must be seleced when the site is targeted at residents of one country / region.

If the site is targeted at people in the United States, then we recommend the domain: US. If the United Kingdom then: UK. If the European Union, then: EU and so on.
