That may be true, but a name also represents an entity's identity in ways the bard could never imagine. For a lot of reasons, from too brief a domain name, misappropriation of names (cybersquatting) and others, many people have had to be creative in finding an available domain name. We will examine many of the issues surrounding them.
What they are
Domains names are the names entered in the line on your browser that take you to a particular site. They refer to the name on the Internet used by an organization or individual, and may be similar to the organization's name, but not necessarily. Domain names are made up of the domain, often referred to as the top level domain (TLD), such as .com, net, and .org. There are other TLDs, including ccTLDs (country code TLDs), such as ,fr (France), .uk (United Kingdom), etc.
Preceding the domain is the domain name, which identifies the business or organization. For instance, techcellence.net has the name techcellence using the domain .net, for a domain name of techcellence.net
The domains were originally meant to indicate the nature of the organization,
or the country of origin, or both.
There are restrictions on the domains .edu (educational institution), .gov (government), and .mil (military), and those domains remain indicative of the nature of the organization using them.
Country code domains may be appended to others or used in place of them, as
in frenchwines.com.fr and frenchwines.fr.
