What is the Difference Between Domain Extensions and Domain Names?
Both domain extensions and domain names are part of the free domain/web hosting package that you get when you enroll with us. Now, as you might have noticed before, a link is composed of two different parts which are separated by a dot, it is even like that on our website “myhostinglive.com” (as you can see there is a domain name, a dot, and a domain extension which in our case is .com).
Domain names are the ones that will let your customers/visitors know what is your online business about, it is like the website address (which is usually the business name) that makes it easier for your users to find and identify you.
For example, Facebook is a very famous website around the world, and the link to get to their domain is “facebook.com“, as you can see, they are using the company name “Facebook” as their domain name so that their users can easily locate their website.
The extension of your free domain can be a ‘country code‘ that lets your visitor know where you are located because each one represents a specific country (for example a “.uk” extension means that your business is from the United Kingdom).
On the other hand, there are codes that represent specific entities (those are called sponsored codes), for example:
- .gov: the website is a government page.
- .edu: the website is from an educational institution.
Finally, an extension can also be a “generic code”, this includes the best-known extensions by all of us, for example, .com, .net, or .co.
