The internet domain name of a website is very important as it represents the "address" ("url" address - universal / uniform resource locator) on the internet, of an organisation, company or individual's homepage (webpage) on the "world wide web" (www).

Throught the "url" (web address), anyone can find and access a website through the internet or even a mobile phone. For example, look at these two "urls" of two different websites:
  • http://www.allsortsoflanguagecourses.com/chinese/mandarin
If you are looking for Mandarin Chinese Language Courses, which url would you most probably find in the search engines? Which url will you find easier to remember and recall? It is perfectly clear and obvious isn't it? Having a good internet domain name that is meaningful and short, will help others find your website and make it easier for better listings (and visibilities) in search engines and directories.

In fact, the internet domain name of a website has become more than the address of a homepage. For many companies and individuals, the internet domain name of their website has become a "brand" or even the company's name itself.

Yes, the importance of a good internet domain name towards the overall success of Internet Marketing Management (Online Marketing) cannot be downplayed. The internet domain name of a website can make or break its overall success.

Welcome to Acme-Best.Net, a branded internet domain name on the internet and world wide web (www) that is synanymous with expertise and specialisations in INTERNET MARKETING Management and especially "Internet Domains Names Investments And Portfolio Management".

Ok, first things first, let us look at the different Generic Top Level Domains (gTLDs), Country Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs), Second Level Domains, Third Level Domains, etc. names extensions available. For example, what's the different between these domain names: And also Then we will look at and discuss the secrets behind thinking up or finding good internet domain names to register (to stake a claim), buy over (to own), lease (to rent), bid, etc.



Internet Generic TOP LEVEL DOMAINs Names (gTLDs) Extensions

Internet "Generic Top-Level Domains" (gTLDs) names extensions are among the most common and widely used domain names around because they are easy to register and affordable. "Generic Top Level Domains" (gTLDs) names are mainly "international" domain names extensions that are available for anyone anywhere to register and own on a first-come-first-served basis.

These are some of the internet generic "Top Level Domains" (gTLDs) names:


".com" : For websites of "commercial organisations" but basically used for any and all sorts of websites. Internet domain names ending with this extention are the most common that even the phrase Dot coms has become synanymous with domain names, websites, even the internet and information technology related companies in general.

As the "grand-father" and "ancestor" of all internet domain names and "Top Level Domains" (TLDs), the ".com" Top Level Domain (TLD) is the most popular too and always the "first choice" for anyone who wants to register a particular domain name. But, as the the most widely available and preferred choice of Top Level Domain (TLD), all the premium domain names ending with ".com" have already been registered or "reserved". In order to register any ".com" domain name successfully, one must be creative in coming up with unique and creative phrases or combination of words and spellings that are still available for registering.

The "after-market" for registered ".com" domain names is very lucrative for earlier investors. Some premium domain names ending with the ".com" generic Top Level Domain (gTld), for example "Business.Com", have managed to "re-sell" as high as US$1,000,000 - US$7,000,000 during the internet boom back around 1997 - 1999 (just before the internet bubble bursted).


".net" : For "network infrastructures" related websites but basically used for any and all sorts of websites. The ".net" Generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) is the best alternative to ".com" and also one of the most widely used. As it is a Top Level Domain (TLD) that anyone anywhere can register a domain name for, ".net" is another one of those "all are eligible" generic Top Level Domains (TLDs). Of course, most of the premium domain names ending with the ".net" extension have also been registered already.

".org" : For websites of "non-commercial and non-governmental" organisations but basically used for any and all sorts of websites. As the second alternative to the ".com" Top Level Domain (TLD), the ".org" is another "all are eligible" domain names extension.

".edu" : A "RESTRICTED" generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) reserved for the websites of "recognised post-secondary educational establishments and institutions of higher learnings of the United States of America" only. The ".edu" generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) is used mostly for the official websites of universities and colleges in the US.

".mil" : Another "RESTRICTED" generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) reserved for the websites of "military of the United States of America" only. The ".mil" generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) is used mostly for the official websites of the army, navy, air-force, marines, coast guards, national guards, etc. military related websites of the US.

".gov" : A "RESTRICTED" generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) reserved for the websites of "United States of America government" only. The ".gov" generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) is used mostly for the official websites of government departments and agencies of the US.


More Internet Generic TOP LEVEL DOMAINs Names (gTLDs)

Here are more internet generic "Top Level Domains" (gTLDs) names:

".biz" : A new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) name for "business" related websites but basically used for any and all sorts of websites. ".biz" is the third alternative (after the ".net" and ".org") generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) for ".com" domain names but somehow it is not as popular and well-received as the original three TLDs. Many domain names that are no longer available to be registered with the ".com", ".net" or ".org" Top Level Domains (TLDs) can still be registered with the ".biz" extension.

".info" : Another new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) name for "informational" related websites but basically used for any and all sorts of websites. ".info" is the fourth alternative (after the ".net", ".org" and ".biz") generic Top Level Domain (gTLD) for ".com" domain names but it is not as popular and well-received. Many domain names that are no longer available to be registered with the ".com", ".net" or ".org" Top Level Domains (TLDs) can still be registered with the ".info" extension.

".name" : A new generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) name for "individuals or familes" or "personal websites".

".asia" : A new "restricted" generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) name for websites from nations in the "Pan-Asia or Asia Pacific" region only.

Eventhough as of today, many Country-Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) are open for registration by anyone anywhere who are willing to pay for them (as some ccTLDs can be very expensive to register), most are still reserved and restriced to registrations from organisations or entities from the particular country (with validations, one way or another needed).

More Internet Country-Code TOP LEVEL DOMAINs Names (ccTLDs)

Eventhough the two-letter extensions of the Country-Code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) names are meant to be initials of a particular country, somehow many of them have taken on new meanings and ended up becoming very popular "vanity domains names" extensions. Here are some of the most popular internet Country-Code "Top Level Domains" (gTLDs) that have become "vanity domains names" extensions:

Internet Country-Code SECOND LEVEL DOMAINs Names (ccSLDs) Extensions

Other than Top Level Domains (TLDs), the next group of domains names extensions will be the Country-Code Second Level Domains (SLDs). For example:
  • ".co.uk" (company), ".net.uk", ".org.uk", ".ac.uk" (academics), ".gov.uk" - Second Level Domains of United Kingdom
  • ".com.my", ".net.my", ".org.my", ".edu.my" (education), ".gov.my" - Second Level Domains of Malaysia
  • ".com.sg", ".net.sg", ".org.sg", ".edu.sg" (education), ".gov.sg", ".per.sg" (personal) - Second Level Domains of Singapore
All Country-Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) names have Second and Third Level Domains names extensions, but the types and combinations of initials will vary. For example, for commercial websites, some Country-Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) names will use ".com.??" (commercial) while the others will use ".co.??" (company). Another example will be for education related websites (eg. websites of universities and educational institutions), some Country-Code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) names will use ".edu.??" (education) while the others will use ".ac.??" (academic).



Sub-DOMAINs Names

Other than Top Level Domains (TLDs) and Second Level Domains (SLDs), there are also "Sub-Domains" names. For example: Sub-Domains Names offer much more choices than usual for the simple reason that they are created out of the original Top Level Domains (TLD) names or Second Level Domains (SLD) names. Normally you can create the Sub-Domains Names out of any domain name you have registered and own.

On the other hand, renting a good and inexpensive sub-domain name of somebody else' premium and meaningful domain names, is an option worth considering. It offers you the best of both worlds as while you will not be able to own the premium names that have already been "grabbed" by other registrants, you get to rent it for a very low and economical fee and you can still benefit from the meaningful keyword.

As you can see, it is very important to have a good domain name that is short, meaningful and easy to remember. A ".com" domain name is the best choice. The second best choices will be ".net" or ".org" and of course the next best choices will be ".info" or ".biz".

On the other hand, country-code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) such as ".us" or ".cn" or country-code Second Level Domains (ccSLDs) such as ".com.my" or ".com.sg" are also alternatives worth considering. Any investment in a good domain name will be worthwhile and pays for itself eventually when the necessary awareness is created successfully on the WWW about a company's website and its products / services.
