Domain names are used to identify one or more IP addresses. For example, the domain name spiderhosting.net represents about a dozen IP addresses. Domain names are used in URLs to identify particular Web pages. For example, in the URL http://www.spiderhosting.net/index.html, the domain name is spiderhosting.net.

Every domain name has a suffix that indicates which top level domain (TLD) it belongs to. There are a large number of such domains. Here’s a few example:

  • gov – Government agencies
  • edu – Educational institutions
  • org – Organizations (nonprofit)
  • mil – Military
  • com – commercial business
  • net – Network organizations
  • ca – Canada
  • th – Thailand
  • Because the Internet is based on IP addresses, not domain names, every Web server requires a Domain Name System (DNS) server to translate domain names into IP addresses.
