If you want to have a basic-level website, then you must have to get a domain name first or even a subdomain which is under of domain if you have no other choice. Because every site has it, to be their Uniform Resource Locator, which officially abbreviated as URL. In this time, you will know what are a domain name and a subdomain, and the difference of them. In the URL of our blog article at http://developingsites.blogspot.com/2012/09/build-easy-basic-and-advanced-websites.html the web address developingsites.blogspot.com is the domain name. On domain name server (abbreviated as DNS) service in the domain panel of a domain name provider, a hostname is also a domain name that has at least one associated IP address record. For example, the domain names www.promos.tk and promos.tk are also hostnames, whereas the tk is not but a domain. The top-level domains such as .com and .ph and .tk are the highest level of domain names of the Internet. Also, a top-level domain is also called a TLD. Hostnames are needed to setup on the DNS service of the domain name provider of the client, if they wants to point the A (which means Address of the IP) records of their web hosting provider to their domain name. If you want to get a domain name? You can register it on domain name "registrar or registration service", which can also be called a provider. Mostly, a domain name are with a cost. But there are some domain name registration services which allow to registered a free domain name as a subdomain of their second-level domain which is not an official second-level hierarchy for the TLD below it.
Did you know that even a domain name can also be called a subdomain? Here are some of the examples how to analyze the domain name inside of a subdomain. Base on our web address, the label blogspot specifies a node blogspot.com as a subdomain of the com top-level domain, and developingsites is a label to create developingsites.blogspot.com a subdomain of blogspot.com domain name, and www is a label to create www.developingsites.blogspot.com a subdomain of developingsites.blogspot.com domain name. Each label may contain from the lowest of 1 to the maximum of 63 characters (which are often called octets on domain hierarchy,) in the domain and subdomain managers of a domain name provider. Some of the people who want to create their own website without a basic knowledge in web development technologies, are using a web hosting service with website builder which is also automatically register a free subdomain under their domain name. Such as the popular easy web hosting, Webs formerly Free Webs at www.webs.com they've freely share their own domain name to their users to register a free subdomain with it, and the subdomain of their user would become subdomain.webs.com a subdomain of webs.com domain name. Those kinds of free web host are useful to build a site which instantly creates a subdomain for their unknowledgeable user. So, if you want a domain name for your site and you doesn't have enough knowledge about domain name server? You can still get a domain name on some web hosting services. But remember, it is a subdomain of a domain name of the web host that you've chosen.
