A domain name is a way to identify and locate computers and resources connected to the Internet. No two organizations can have the same domain name.
Every company or organization that wants to be on the internet will register a domain name for use as their on-line identity or name that clients will use to access on-line services such as the organization’s website or email system.

What are top-level and second-level domain names?

Dot Com (.com) was the first domain type to be introduced and is considered a top level domain or TLD. Top level domains include any that contain only one suffix — for example .net, .info, .biz and so on.

Second level domains or 2LDs are domain names containing another level after the .com or .co suffix. For example, .com.au is a second level domain style as it contains an additional suffix after the .com that shows the website originates in Australia.

What are gTLDs and ccTLDs?

A gTLD is a generic top-level domain and includes addresses like .marketing, .estate, .fashion, and .photography. This is an area really booming in popularity lately and there is a huge range to choose from, whatever your industry!

ccTLDs are country code top-level domains which are usually restricted to certain countries. These are domains like .au, .uk and .us
