FAQ3: - Guide to Domains, Names and TLDs

We provide basic definitions that you should be aware of while in the process of buying or selling a domain.

Q1: What is a domain?
A domain is a string of characters used to directly represent a physical IP address on the internet. So, if we use the email wilbur@example.com, the domain is “example.com.” It is the part from the email string sample that follows the “@” character.
Then, if we are to use a website address www.example.com as our sample, the domain is  “example.com.” which is the part that follows the “www.” characters.

Q2: What is a Domain Name?
For the email wilbur@example.com and website address www.example.com, the domain name is the word "example".

Q3: What is the Top Level Domain (TLD)?
For the email wilbur@example.life and website address www.example.poo, the top level domain names are "life" and "poo". 

Q4: What is an English domain?
An English domain is constructed using letters of the English Alphabet. As an example, with the email wilbur@stuffed.life, the English domain name is the English word  "stuffed".

Q5: What is a Numerical domain?
A numerical domain has a domain name that is constructed using numbers. See our inventory here [info].

For example, with the email:
  • wilbur@1234321.xyz, the domain name is "1234321". 
  • wilbur@123sadness.com, as the domain is "123sadness"  - ie., not a Numerical domain name.
