What are Domain Extensions ?

Some of our most common plans for basic and professional sites are :

A domain name (ex. mavenheads.com) itself comprises of two elements: before and after "the dot".

  • Name (ex mavenheads).
  • Extension (ex .com)

The name part is any combination of alpha numeric characters that you can think of. This part before the dot is the domain name that you register within the Domain Names providers over the ineternet (like us).

The extension(/s) represents a sort of logical groupings that you can choose to give a sort of meaning to your domain name(/s). This part to the right of the dot, such as "com", "net", "org" and so on, is known as a "top-level domain" or TLD.

Now a days these TLDs are availiable in many flavours that you can choose from according to your needs or choice.

  • classic old TLDs ( gTLD ) like .com, .net, .org etc
  • country specific TLDs ( ccTLD ) like .in, .us, .ca etc
  • specially designed professional name TLDs like .agency, .legal, .hotels etc
  • IDN (Internationalised Domain Names) - domain names with local languages.

TLDs
Hero 1

The second part (technicalled called label) of the domain names, i.e, the one after the dot (first label from the right most), is technically called a TLD. Initially only a handful of TLDs existed. Best example of early TLDs are:

  • .com - originally meant for (US) commercial organisations.
  • .org - originally meant for Non-profit organizations.
  • .net - originally meant for Internet providers.
  • .info - Information services.

The restriction with these TLDs are no more in place and any person can register domain names with these TLDs. Not only this, over the period of time since usage of internet among general public, a lot more TLDs have come into existence. These TLDs can be classified as follows:

  • gTLD - called generic "Top-Level-Domains"
    • sTLD - Sponsored Top Level Domain (sTLD).
    • uTLD - Unsponsored Top Level Domains.
  • ccTLD - Country Code Top Level Domains (ccTLD).

IDNs
Hero 1

IDNs - Internationalized Domain Names (IDNs) permit the global community to use a domain name in their native language or script. This is enabled by allowing domain names to have characters from different scripts, beyond the letters (a to z), digits (0 to 9) and hyphen (-). Such domain names could contain letters or characters from non-Latin scripts (for example, Arabic or Chinese or Devanagri).

IDNs variant TLDs (both gTLD & ccTLD) have also started coming into existence.

Examples: IDN ccTLDs are: .भारत (Devanagri/India), .中國 (Traditional Chinese/China)

Examples: IDN gTLDs are: .संगठन (.org in Devanagri), .コム (.com in Japaneese)
