What is a Domain Name and how is it organised?
A domain name is the text name corresponding to the numeric IP address of a computer on the Internet. Internet users access pages of a website using a web address aka URL. The domain name is at the heart of that web address.
Domain names are organized in different levels. The primary domain level is called a top-level domain (TLD). They include generic top-level domains (gTLDs) such as .com,.net and .org, and country code top-level domains (ccTLDs) such as .co.uk, etc. Each TLD is operated by an entity called a Registry.
Below these top-level domains are the second-level and third-level domain names that are registered by the Registry. For example, in the name Tralliance.travel, the word “Tralliance” is a name at the second level. A name at the third level might be Oxford.ac.uk, where “Oxford” is a name at the third level.
All domain name registrations are handled by registrars, who are the businesses with which domain name users have their contact at the time of registration.
What is the purpose of a domain name?
Domain names act as memorable addresses for Internet users. Originally used as a single address for a business on the Internet, the expansion of the Internet has caused domain name use to evolve. Since all domain names have extremely low costs associated with them, multiple domain names for products, services and business units, as well as registration across many TLDs, offers low cost marketing access to more than 2 billion Internet users.
A domain name registration with a registrar confers an exclusive right of use of the domain name by the registrant. However, since a registration grants only use rights, the registrant is not the legal owner of the domain name.
There are currently over 200 million active domain names. At most recent count, there are approximately 2.3 billion Internet users, with China having the largest number of users, followed by the United States.
By the end the twentieth century, it was widely acknowledged and recognised that the travel and tourism sector, one of the biggest industries and a key engine of global economic growth, needed a dedicated top level domain name. The spectacular development of the Internet and the huge amount of information available to users meant that it was becoming increasingly confusing to find the relevant content and information among millions of sites and pages, many of which were put up by individuals who did not have a recognised and genuine travel and tourism related businesses. .travel, a pioneer in this field, was therefore set up to help businesses promote themselves on the Internet and help users identify the best places to find any travel related information. The fact that many Top Level Domain Names (TLDs) are being created and seek to emulate .travel, shows the increasing relevance and popularity of meaningful domain names.
