    What do all the various domain name extensions stand for?

    What are top level domain names and why?

    Well mostofthe extensions are fairly obvious, biz =business, info= information, sr=senior, blah blah blah. If you have any specific extensions you are curious about let me know.

    The second question, sounds a little deep maybe you can clarify what you are asking.

    sr=senior wasn't obvious to me!!! Neither are ws, nu, net (internet or network?), or cc.

    When purchasing a domain name it is recommended that one "secure all top level domain entries while they are available." So, what are top level domain entries?

    Example:

    [b] www.yahoo.com[/b]

    www is a 3rd level domain name

    yahoo is a 2nd level domain name

    com is the 1st or TOP level domain name.

    They just want to get you to buy the 2nd level name for each of: com, net, org, biz, us and whatever else they're selling. I bought the com, net and org only for my famiy surname - the same would probably hold true for a "business" (money making) name.

    de nada - that was significant information to me when discovered a couple years ago -- and logical when finally understood. Now, if I can just get HTML to behave the same way.

    I moved the site to 100megswebhosting last night, this morning I chnaged the domain name servers. DNS will probably change today/night, though it is said to take 24-72 hrs.

    Dave

    edit: if you need in to an account or to set one up PM me and I will get you in now.

    Thanks...I have no pressing need right now but it's bookmarked.

    While I'm here tho...I was bitten in the ass using a cheap host, what are 100Megs really like? Do they deliver what they promise?

    I want to spread my own sites out and try a few different hosts with a view to using them for clients.

    I'm sick of hosts that charge $20 - $40/month for basic (no ASP, PHP etc.) services but after losing money with one of the lesser known hosts I'm being cautious.

    I came across 100megswebhosting, just surfing the net one night. I took alook around the site and decided to do more investigating before promoting them to users.

    I talked to members here, searched the web and read posts at other forums. The picture that was painted was that of above average customer service.

    I now have some personal experience to add to the above,I put them on the site as an advertiser, they also sponsored out contest of sept/oct which I am sure you remember. Enigma was the winner of the contest(her referals led to the most activity...she only has 1 referal so you can see anybody could win) After the contest was over I contacted 100megs and gave them Enigmas name, they said to have her contact them. Unfortunatly it did not go too smooth. Enigma did not get a reply, 100megs said they never got the mail this happened twice..then I realized why. All of my writtin communications had a ticket# like a trouble ticket, once I asked Enigma to include this in the subject field of her mail...BINGO, she was set up.

    I purchased my hosting last night before bed, when I woke up this morning it was all set up. I think that is pretty good for a Sunday night.

    I agree that ESPECIALLY on the net one should be overly cautious. There are four areas where you should tread gently, obviously hosting and domain names, but also advertisers as well as scripts.

    Bottom line...just another opinion

    Any plans to register European or other foreign domains there in future (.co.uk etc.)?
