A clients browsers queries the DNS server for the IP adresses of a certain domain and returns it .The clients computer can then request from the web server a webpage and display it on the clients computer now that it knows the ip adress of the webserver where the website is located



What are TLDs and ccTLDs?

Each domain name has a dot (.); the part that follows it is the Top Level Domain (TLD). Some examples include; .com, .org, .biz amongst others. The TLDs represent information relevant to the website. A commercial website may use .com which stands for commercial. On the other hand, ccTLDs are country code top level domains which are designed to show sites that are located or associated with a certain territory. A common Kenyan ccTLD is .ke which shows that the site is located in Kenya or has an association with Kenya. It is however not necessary that a ccTLD symbolizes association to a particular country. Some such as .tv shows association to the country Tuvalu, but is generally used by media and television websites. With ccTLDs, there are second level domains such as, .co.ke, mainly for business in Kenya. These second level ccTLDs give further insight into the use for the website. There are ways to make domain names easily memorable through the use of domain hacks. Using a domain hack, one could create a full word or phrase when combining the domain name with the TLD, making it easy to remember. I could use the TLD .me for Montenegro and combine it with ‘aweso’ to create the domain aweso.me making it easy for my audience to remember.



What is Domain Registration

Domain Name Registration is the process of reserving your website’s name for a specified period of time. You are the domain registrant while the company (Sky Host) that helps you with your domain registration is the domain registrar. When you visit Sky Host to have your domain name registered, we check the registry which manages each TLD option. Since each TLD has its own registry, we shall check with the specific TLD that you are interested in registering to find out whether it is available or not. If it is available, the registry adds it to their registry and you are given access to it. If the domain name has already been registered by another user, you are notified that it is unavailable at that particular time. In many countries, there is a Network Information Centre that is in charge of all these registration processes. The Network Information Centre has all the data with regards to domain names that are registered and their IP addresses. The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) creates and manages the procedures for Internet namespaces.
