Remember, however, that actually works is not so simple. Addresses of all computers on the Internet are written using special combinations of 4-12 digits. This is the IP address of the computer. This combination is divided into four groups of 1-3 digits. This address will look something like this: 255.120.16.0. Each site has its own combination and it didn't need to remember, was coined domain names.
Remember that the same address can reside only a single site, as well as the computer could have several IP addresses at a time. If you are considering a domain from the point of view of a professional, you should know that it is a zone in which the site, or category to which it belongs. The domain zone you will see after the dot in a website address. Remember that each area identifies a site to any category or territory. For example, the domain .EN or domain .Russia, which, incidentally, has only recently emerged and became the first Russian domain, indicate affiliation of site to the Russian Federation. Domain .US indicates US English .DE – Germany, .AT – at Austria .UA - Ukraine, .UK – the UK. If you want to see the full list of country code domains, go to Wikipedia or another reference site and search for your domain and its value.
Remember also that some domains indicate organization type: .ORG – non-profit organization .EDU – educational sites and universities .COM – commercial organizations .GOV – government organizations .BIZ – business, .TV – TV, etc. So make sure the domain of your website corresponds to the selected category, otherwise, going to him, users will obtain absolutely not the information they expect. In addition, be aware of the existence of the domain zone .NET, which currently remains the most visited and includes any of the location and category of the web pages.
Advice 2 : How to know the creation date of the website
Sometimes you need to know when it was created a specific website. This can help programs that give all the information about the domain status, owner name, date, start and end delegation.
Find out the date of creation of the domain using the whois service-online. Whois (Who is it?) — the program for search of registration data of the site. Type in the box labeled "Enter the domain" address of website, date of registration which you are interested in. Click next to the button "Check", and will appear below the domain information. In the string created date of creation of the website: year/month/day. Below is given information about the period during which the paid service of the site (paid-till), and line free-date — expiration date of the domain registration in case of failure. The last two lines change after to pay a fee for the renewal of the domain.
A Whois service can run on your computer. The bottom of the page where you can download the program whois, click Download WhoisThisDomain (in ZIP file) and save the file to your computer. Open the archive and double-click, right-click on the app whoistd.exe. In the window where the cursor is flashing, type the address of website and click OK. You will see the same information as in the first step.
If you are using the Linux operating system, the program whois is already installed in it. To find out the date the registration site, type in a terminal the following command: "whois domain site" or "whois IP address". Date of creation of the website will appear in the line created.
Before you know the date of registration of the website with the help of certain programs, take a look at the web site. Some of the sitex in the bottom of the page can be accommodated, for example, the following inscription: "© 2005-2012". 2005 — the year of the creation of the website. However, the number and month there are not listed.
