Top-Level and Second-Level Domain Names

In "domain.com", the ".com" component is the Top-Level Domain, and "domain" is the Second-Level Domain. There are 2 groups of TLDs - generic, like .com, .net, .org, and country code - .ca, .fr, .de. The domain is what depicts your web portal, trademark, or firm, and it is what your web page visitors will distinguish you by.

Usually, you will see the TLD-specific registration requirements on the website of the domain registration company where you register them.
