What is a Domain?

A domain is a unique, human-readable address used to access websites on the internet. It simplifies navigating the web by converting numerical IP addresses into easily remembered names.
Key Components of a Domain:
  • Domain Name: The full name that users type into their browser, such as example.com.
  • Top-Level Domain (TLD): The last part of the domain name, like .com, .org, or country-specific codes such as .et or .uk.
  • Second-Level Domain (SLD): The main part of the domain name, directly to the left of the TLD. In example.com, "example" is the SLD
  • Subdomain: An optional part added to the left of the SLD, such as blog.example.com, where "blog" is the subdomain of example.com.
How Domains Work:
  • DNS (Domain Name System): Translates domain names into IP addresses so browsers can locate and connect to web servers.
  • Domain Registrars: Companies that manage domain name registration. Users can purchase and register domain names through these services (e.g., enom).
  • WHOIS Database: A publicly accessible directory that contains details about registered domains, including ownership and registration dates.
Importance of Domains:
  • Branding and Identity: A unique domain name helps establish a brand’s online presence.
  • Accessibility: Domains make it easy for users to visit websites without remembering complex numerical IP addresses.
  • Professional Email Addresses: Custom domains enable businesses to create professional email addresses (e.g., info@example.com).
  • SEO and Marketing: A relevant and memorable domain name can enhance search engine rankings and support marketing efforts.

What is Domain Registration & How it Works?

Domain Name Registration is the process of acquiring a domain name from a domain registrar for a certain period, typically one year or more. This involves:

  • Selecting a Domain Name: The user chooses a desired domain name that is not already registered by someone else.
  • Checking Availability: The domain registrar checks if the selected domain name is available.
  • Providing Information: The user provides personal information required for the WHOIS database.
  • Payment: The user pays for the registration period.
  • Domain Configuration: The domain can be configured to point to the hosting service or any other service.

Check your Domain Availability:

About 'Domain Transfer'

Domain Transfer refers to moving a domain name from one registrar to another. The key steps include:

  • Unlocking the Domain: The domain must be unlocked by the current registrar.
  • Getting an Authorization Code: An EPP (Extensible Provisioning Protocol) code or transfer key is required.
  • Initiating the Transfer: The user requests a transfer from the new registrar.
  • Approval Process: The current registrar must approve the transfer.
  • Completion: The domain is transferred to the new registrar.

About 'Use Existing Domain'

Using an Existing Domain allows customers to use a domain they already own and register it with a hosting service or other services. This process typically involves:

  • Updating Nameservers: The user needs to update the domain’s nameservers to point to the new hosting provider.
  • Getting an Authorization Code: Ensuring that the domain is correctly pointing to the new hosting account.
  • Domain Verification: The user requests a transfer from the new registrar.
  • DNS Configuration: Configuring DNS records (A records, MX records, etc.) as needed.
