What is a Domain Names and how do they work?
A Domain Name on Living Internet works like an address forwarding service.
All of your Web site content sits on a computer with a unique internet address. This is called an IP address.
An IP address is made up of a series of numbers, such as 22.214.171.124.
Your domain name directs visitors to your site using this IP address.
We use domain names instead of IP addresses because most people find it
easier to remember a name rather than a series of numbers.
I registered a Domain Name - when can I use it?
New domains and changes to domains may take up to 4-8 hours for .COM and .NET domains and about 24-48 hours for all other domain extensions to become effective. This is due to the number of networks involved, and the fact that several different agencies control those networks. This delay applies to all domains and all registrars.
Please allow for this delay when planning Web sites or configuring a domain to work with your email.
What do I do with my domain once it's been registered?
Besides setting up your Web site, there are a number of things you can do with your domain once you register it.
Sell it. Domain names can be a great investment. If you have registered a domain name that you are not using, maybe someone else can.
Go to the Account Manager and set up a For Sale parked page for your domain name. Don't forget to include your contact information.
Protect your brand online.
The more domain names you register, the better. Prevent others from registering a similar domain name to yours—just
to steal away your customers. What to do with all these names? Forward them to your main domain name.
Hold on to it.
Maybe you haven’t decided what to do with your new domain name. Don’t worry – there’s no rush.
You can leave it parked with us for the length
History of Internet and the WWW.
It all started in Kosmos ...
In the late 1950s USSR launched their first satelite Sputnik.
In 1958 United States Department of Defense (DoD) created Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA),
originally called ARPA to regain a technological lead.
In 1962 J.C.R. Licklider at MIT conceived the original idea of Galactic Network:
a set of globally interconnected computers where resources and information could be accessed from any site.
In the following year Licklider joined ARPA.
In 1969 Information Processing Technology Office (IPTO) at ARPA created the
first network that interconnects computers based on packet switching
This network is now known as ARPANET, the predecessor of today's global Internet.
In 1978 British Post Office, Western Union International and Tymnet collaborated
to create the first international packet switched network, referred to as the International Packet Switched Service (IPSS).
In 1981 IPSS network grew from Europe and the US to cover Canada, Hong Kong and Australia.
In 1983 United States' National Science Foundation (NSF) constructed a university network
backbone that would later become the NSFNet, the first operational TCP/IP-wide area network. January 1, 1983 is considered
by some the birthdata of the Internet.
In 1985 the TCP/IP-wide area network was opened to commercial interests.
In 1988 US government funded Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) under a contract
between the DARPA and Information Sciences Institute (ISI).
In 1989 Tim Berners-Lee begun creating HTML, HTTP and the first few Web pages at CERN, international European Center of Nuclear Research.
In 1990 apeared the term "Internet" to describe a single global TCP/IP network.
This was after TCP/IP experienced public growth due to its ability to work over pre-existing communication networks such as
NSFNet, Usenet, BITNET, X.25, Compuserve, JANET and Telenet and others.
In 1991 CERN publicized the new World Wide Web project -
the second significant event in the history of Internet.
In 1993 the National Center for Supercomputing Applications at the University of Illinois
released version 1.0 of Mosaic web browser which superceded earlier popular ViolaWWW based upon HyperCard.
In 1993 Network Solutions, Inc. (NSI) received an exclusive contract by the
National Science Foundation (NSF) to be the sole Domain name registrar for .com, .net and .org Top Level Domain (TLD) names.
NSI also maintained the central database of assigned names called WHOIS.
NSI acted as a de facto registrar, selling names directly to end users.
In 1995 Network Solutions received authority to charge $100 for
domain name registrations; 30% of this revenue went to NSF to create an
"Internet Intellectual Infrastructure Fund".
In 1997 NSI was charged with antitrust violations with regards to domain names.
Domain name registration fee was reduced to $70 after the court ruled 30% of the registration fee
that went to the NSF to be an illegal tax.
In 1998 in the process to improve the technical management of internet names and addresses
Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)
was created to oversee a number of Internet-related tasks previously performed directly on behalf
of the U.S. Government by IANA and other organizations.
In 1999 Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) broke Network Solutions'
monopoly on domain name registration and now you can register your domain name for as low as $8.75.
