Domain expertise: a closer look at website addresses with IONOS’s Domain Guide

Domains represent the basic name of a website (e.g. ionos.com). They are clear and unique addresses that are extended through subdomains and subpages. They can be purchased from a domain provider as long as you comply with certain criteria. There are many things you should know regarding web addresses; it isn’t as simple as choosing a domain name and then registering it. As part of the IONOS Digital Guide, our domain portal provides comprehensive information about internet addresses and their components. Under the ‘Domain’ category you will find both basic articles and more complex ones for more advanced readers.

IONOS’s Domain Guide at a glance

Our Domain Guide is divided into four subcategories. The heading ‘domain extensions’ deals with the various top-level domains, like .org or .com. Besides the (traditional) generic and country-specific top-level domains, we also introduce many new web address extensions and examine their potential. Under the heading ‘domain registration’ you can obtain advice on domain registration, forwarding, and transfers as well as other administrative matters relating to internet addresses. News and backgrounds can be found in our ‘domain news’ section. Finally, we provide you with facts, suggestions, and recommendations with regard to naming and registering your internet address. All together, these subcategories form an extensive domain portal where you can expand your knowledge on domains.

Domain expertise for everyone

The target audience is just as varied as the contents of the Domain Guide, as it’s made up of small and medium-sized businesses as well as website operators, domain traders, and inquisitive readers. As is the case for all categories of IONOS’s Digital Guide, the domain guide also caters to both novices  and experienced users. Posts such as ‘What is a domain?’ Or ‘The most important tips for domain registration’, don’t require any previous knowledge before reading. Articles like ‘How to protect your domain from ‘typo squatting’ or ‘Domain parking: earning easy money with unused domains’ appeal more to skilled readers. Our domain guide is an extensive online reference that should come in handy for both private and business contexts.
