What is a Domain name? Rules & Cost and How to Buy it?

What Is a Domain Name?

A domain name is a unique and recognizable identifier for an organization (or individual) on the World Wide Web. It’s like a street address for your website, and it typically consists of two or more parts, such as www.example.com. Domain names are often used to help users locate websites easily since web browsers and other applications use them to identify sites on the Internet. The part of the domain name after the last dot (.) is referred to as a “top-level domain” (TLD). Common TLDs include .com, .net, .org, and so on. For example, Ultahost’s domain name is ultahost.com – with a “.com” TLD.

How Much Does a Domain Name Cost? 

A domain name can cost anywhere from $0 to hundreds or thousands of dollars, depending on the specific domain name and the registrar. Generally, shorter and more popular domain names will cost more than longer or less popular ones.

The price may vary depending on the extension or Top-Level Domain (TLD) that you choose. For example, a .com domain name cost almost 13.50$ with ultahost and it is usually cheaper than a .net or a .org domain name.
