What is a Domain Name?

A domain name is a Web address, such as godaddy.com, that is linked to an IP address (which represents a physical point on the Internet). When someone types a domain name into a Web browser, the requested Web page displays.

A domain name consists of a top-level and a second-level domain. A top-level domain (TLD) is the part of the domain name located to the right of the dot (godaddy.com). The most common top-level domains are .COM, .NET, and .ORG. Some other popular top-level domains are .BIZ, .INFO, .NAME and .WS. These TLDs have certain guidelines but are, for the most part, available to any registrant, anywhere in the world.

The part of the domain name located to the left of the dot — “godaddy,” in this case — is called the second-level domain (SLD) name. The second-level domain name is the “readable” part of the address and refers to the organization or entity behind the Internet address. Second-level domain names must be registered with an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)-accredited registrar.

What is the Daily Harold

Ok so you’re asking yourself just what is “The Daily Harold” right? Well my name is Harold Martin. I’m 29 years old and live in Newton, IA. I’m recently divorced and have no kids. I used to run a website called The Daily Harold when I was single. Once I got married I started a new site called The Martin Bunch for my new family. Well now that that family is gone I decided I need to start up my old blog for family/friends to visit to keep up with my life. I will try my best to keep this one updated more often than I have others in the past.

So what will you find here? Nothing special. Me writing about random crap. Stupid stuff to most. Maybe interesting to some. News articles I come across or some random thing I did or saw, etc. You’ll never know. I’m not much of a writer but when I get compelled I tend to write some good stuff. I’ll start off the site with a post from my old site The Martin Bunch. Hope to see you all come back real soon!
