What’s a Domain Name?

dotirish400Domain names are used to identify websites and other resources on the internet. Top-Level Domains, or registries, are responsible for managing the allocation of names within their namespace. For many years, there were only a handful of generic Top-Level Domains (also called domain extensions), such as .COM or .ORG.

In 2012, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), began a process of expansion of generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs). Now there are hundreds of new gTLDs, and more on the way.
