Domain names are made up of a series of strings, each separated by a dot. The last string of a domain is referred to as the top-level domain (TLD), the second level is the name, for example 'siteopia' in www.siteopia.com and a third level refers to the www. part.

How do I register a domain name?
Once you have decided on a domain name and a service provider you should use the domain name search function to check the availability of your domain name. When registering your domain name you will be required to provide a Registrant Name, this is the person or company who you want to be the legal owner of the domain name.
You can often register a domain name for multiple years, which is often good for creating longevity for your domain name.
