About Domain Names

A Domain Name is the name that typically identifies a website. For example, "" is the domain name of Silverweb's website. The domain name is registered for one year at a time and needs to be renewed every year. Silverweb registers your chosen Domain Name in your name or your company name, depending on your requirement.

Domain Names consist of two parts. For example, in "" the "" represents what is known as the top level domain (TLD) and "silverweb" represents the second level domain and is the actual name. The Domain Name, which can be up to 63 characters long, can be used with different TLDs, such as, .com, .net, etc. There are also country specific Top Level Domains, such as for South Africa, for the United Kingdom, etc.
