Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS A DOMAIN NAME?
A domain name is part of the globally-deployed Domain Name System, upon which the Internet runs. The domain name is the text name corresponding to the numeric Internet Protocols (IP) address of every device that connects to the Internet.
Domain names have different components. The primary domain level is called a top-level domain (TLD). This is the name that appears “to the right of the dot.” Top-level domains include generic top-level domains (gTLDs) such as .com,.net and .org, and country code top-level domains (ccTLDs) such as .co.uk, etc. It also includes new top-level domains such as .live, .life, .social, .travel and hundreds of others. Each TLD is operated by an entity called a Registry. Donuts Inc. is the world’s largest registry of new top-level domains.
To the left of the dot are second-level and third-level domain names. For example, in the premium.domains name, the word “travel” is at the second level. A name at the third level might be “Oxford” in Oxford.ac.uk.
All domain name registrations are handled by registrars (retailers such as Encirca, GoDaddy, Name.com, Squarespace, WordPress and hundreds of others), from whom individuals and businesses buy websites, web hosting, digital marketing tools, and domain names.
WHAT IS A PREMIUM DOMAIN NAME?
Premium domains are usually short, memorable names that are valuable search keywords or meaningful, brandable business identifiers. They vary in price and availability, depending on the search term and top-level domain. Premium domains are considered to be valuable “digital real estate” because they’re easy to remember, and therefore help a business to drive overall awareness, attract new customers, and expand its reach.
Think of it this way: In the 1920s, if you started a new business, you would want a premium address. For example, a London business would be much more succesfull on Oxford Street than setting up in Croydon, nothing against Croydon but an example of location, “attracting more traffic” the rent would be at a premium of course just like a premium domain name.
WHO USES PREMIUM DOMAIN?
Individuals and businesses of all sizes are investing in premium domain names. That’s because they often contain search keywords that enable ‘evergreen’ high placement in organic searches, and because they help to convey memorable, meaningful brand impressions. For anyone interested in managing their digital identity, premium domains are an excellent investment.
WHAT IS A REGISTRY?
The Registry is responsible for the registration of domain names in the top-level domain. Registries must be authorized and accredited by ICANN (the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers). In 2017, Donuts Inc. acquired the .TRAVEL top-level domain, bringing the total of its top-level domains under management to 240. Designed to serve travel enthusiasts and the global travel and tourism community, the major aims of the .travel Top Level Domain (TLD) are to improve Internet identity and establish trust between the travel industry and customers.
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF A DOMAIN NAME?
People are able to understand and memorize letters and words more easily than strings of numbers. Domain names “translate” a numeric Internet Protocol (IP) address into a memorable, character-based address for Internet users.
Once you register a domain name, you have an exclusive right of use to that domain name. However, since a registration grants only use rights, the registrant is not the legal owner of the domain name.
There are hundreds of millions active domain names, used for websites, redirects, links to social media platforms, online marketing and ad campaigns and more.
WHO CAN BUY A PREMIUM DOMAIN NAME?
Anyone – individuals, organizations, businesses or investors – can purchase premium domain names.
HOW DO PREMIUM DOMAIN NAME WORK?
Premium domain work exactly like all domain names, only they’re usually more memorable and more effective at attracting audiences to your brand, and thus have a premium price. Users can go to a registrar such as GoDaddy, Name.com, (or hundreds of others), type in the domain name of their choice, review and then select their preferences. Once you find the name of your choice, you register the domain for up to 10 years. You can use that domain name as a “pointer” to your Facebook, LinkedIn or YouTube platform, as the name of your website, or as a short link to post other forms of online content.
WHO IS ICANN?
ICANN, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, is the global, non-profit organization responsible for coordinating the Domain Name System (DNS) and related functions of the Internet. ICANN’s mission is to protect the stability, integrity and utility of the DNS and the one authoritative root on behalf of the global internet community. It is responsible for development of consensus policies, which include those that allow the orderly introduction of new TLDs. The new TLDs are intended to address issues such as cyber-squatting and trademark infringement, but also to innovate new methods of search, navigation, and domain names distribution to value-added services.
