An extension is the last part or ending of a domain name. They are often referred to as TLDs (Top-Level Domains), the domain root or suffix. Some popular TLDs include .com, .co.uk, .net, .org. There are many categories of extensions such as ccTLDs and new gTLDs.
ccTLDs are country code specific so they represent a particular country e.g. .co.uk for UK and .ie for Ireland. New gTLDs are often more practical and easy to remember e.g. .photography, .guru, .ninja, .london, .legal, .sucks etc. Some businesses and brands register their domain name in a number of extensions to ensure they are fully protected.
DNS is basically the live map of all domains and websites. DNS is the backbone of the internet and when you register a domain you will have access to your DNS settings. DNS changes can take 12 hours to propogate around the world but in the UK and EU this is done within 10 minutes depending on your ISP cache. BT as an example are much slower at updating the cache.
gTLDs are generic Top-Level Domains, also known as new gTLDs or nTLDs. These extensions are practical and memorable and they offer consumers an alternative to more traditional suffixes such as .com and .net.
New gTLDs are commonly used to describe the function of a website e.g. an actor could choose .actor for his website or a fitness instructor could use .fitness. There are hundreds of new gTLDs to choose from including .london, .cymru, .wales, .diet, .farm, .website, .love, .education and many more. Find out more and choose your ideal domain name today.
