Spider WebHosting also offers new clients and old clients the ability to register, renew and transfer domain names.
A domain name is an identification label that
defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority, or control in
the Internet. Domain names are also hostnames that identify Internet
Protocol (IP) resources such as web sites. Domain names are formed by the rules and procedures of the Domain Name System (DNS).
Domain names are used in various networking contexts and
application-specific naming and addressing purposes. They are organized
in subordinate levels (subdomains) of the DNS root
domain, which is nameless. The first-level set of domain names are the
top-level domains (TLDs), including the generic top-level domains
(gTLDs), such as the prominent domains , and ,
and the country code top-level domains (ccTLDs). Below these top-level
domains in the DNS hierarchy are the second-level and third-level
domain names that are typically open for reservation by end-users that
wish to connect local area networks to the Internet, run web sites, or
create other publicly accessible Internet resources.
