Explain Domain Name Registration ?

In simple words, a domain name is nothing but the name or URL of a website. Domain names is used to identify IP address of website. When we type a website name on our internet browser, then the browser will sent request to DNS server to resolve the domain name to IP address. The DNS servers manages a massive database that maps domain names to IP addresses. When we access a Website, requests go to DNS server that resolves the request to IP address. The request goes to that IP address for getting the response from the server. Servers that resolves a domain name to IP addresses are called DNS servers or Domain Name Servers. Every domain name has a suffix that indicates which top level domain (TLD) it belongs to. No two websites in the world can have the same domain name with same TLD extension. There are only a limited number of such domains. For example:

  • com - commercial business
  • gov - Government agencies
  • edu - Educational institutions
  • org - Organizations (nonprofit)
  • net - Network organizations
  • in - India
  • us - USA

Domain registration is the process of registering a domain name, which identifies one or more IP addresses with a name that is easier to remember and use in URLs to identify particular Web pages. The person or business that registers  domain name is called the domain name registrars.

Domain name registration is the act of reserving a name on the Internet for a certain period, usually one year. It is important to know that this domain will remain yours for as long as you renew it and there is no way to purchase a domain name forever. Domain name registration is necessary for a website, an email or another web service. However you don't have to always register a new domain name. Many companies allow you to use subdomains of their domain names for a website, or you can have an email with their primary domain.

The most important thing about a domain name registration is that it gives you personality and recognized identity. The price for a domain name registration varies greatly on its extension.
