Internet Domain Names
What is a domain name?
Domain names are the human-friendly forms of Internet addresses, and are commonly used to find web sites. For example, the domain name melisbek.com is used to locate the Melisbek&Partners web site at http://melisbek.com. A domain name also forms the basis of other methods or applications on the Internet, such as file transfer (ftp) or email addresses - for example the email address firstname.lastname@example.org is also based on the domain name melisbek.com.
The domain name system is essentially a global addressing system. It is the way that domain names are located and translated into Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, and vice versa. A domain name such as wipo.int is a unique alias for an IP address (a number), which is an actual physical point on the Internet.
A gTLD is a generic top level domain. It is the top-level domain of an Internet address, for example: .com, .net and .org. In addition, seven new gTLDs were also selected by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers) on November 16, 2000. These are: .aero (for the entire aviation community); .biz (for business purposes); .coop (for cooperatives); .info (unrestricted); .museum (for museums); .name (for personal names); .pro (for professionals).
A domain name in gTLD can be registered through any of ICANN-Accredited Registrars or our company. We are affilate of ICANN-accredited DomainPeople and in addition to domain name registration we offer such services as domain forwarding, whois protection, instant site, domain guard and registration of nameserververs.
A ccTLD is a country code top-level domain, for example: .kg for Kyrgyzstan. These ccTLDs are administered independently by nationally designated registration authorities. There are currently 252 ccTLDs reflected in the database of the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). WIPO, which has a ccTLD Program, has launched a database portal, facilitating online searches for information related to country code top level domains.
In many countries ccTLD administrators require local residency or official registration from persons and businesses. However many trademark owners wish to protect their domain names without registering business operations in many countries. Our company offers unique service for domain name registration and securing in such countries.
