What is a domain

It's an Internet name that's easy to remember and allows you, among other things, to visit websites or send emails. It usually consists of two words separated by a period. The first word identifies the name and the last (called the "extension") identifies the type of domain. In the early days of the Internet, devices connected to the Net were identified using an IP address. Thanks to the Domain Name System (DNS), IP addresses have now been replaced with domain names, which are easy to remember.

There are two main groups of domain names:

  • Generic domains - these are domain names that don't meet the geographical criteria. They are managed by ICANN, the world authority on domain issues, in conjunction with the bodies responsible for maintaining each type of domain. In recent years, hundreds of new types of extensions have been launched, with many types of categories: geographical (.paris, .barcelona), business (.company, .store), leisure (.dance), etc.
  • Territorial domains - are domains associated with a geographical location. For example, Portugal (.pt) or France (.fr). There are 252 territorial domains, and they are made up of two letters that identify each country. They are managed by national bodies and according to the registration rules of each specific country.
