Say, you want to purchase a domain name for your business or a personal site or a blog or your organization and you want to check quickly whether that domain is available or is it taken. A domain name can be considered as the lingual representation of an IP address. There are three different levels that represents different part of the domain name. Also, you would like to know which TLD (top level domain) is available for the name you are looking for.
Format for the Domain name:
Domain name cannot exceed 63 characters in total and it has to be atleast two characters long. It can contain combination of numbers, letters and hyphens but cannot contain any other symbol or spaces. The first and the last characters of the domain name cannot be a hyphen.
Registration of the Domain names:
Domain name is directly associated with the IP address upon registration and this connection of domain names to IP addresses is managed and regulated by ICANN (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). There is no special skills or knowledge required for registering a domain name as ICANN maintains a list of accredited domain registrars from which one can maintain the domain names.
