Domains are addresses of Web, your locations on Internet. They are shortcuts for communication and access of information. Register domain names to identify yourself and promote your business. The following are some examples of domain names that may seem familiar to you: yahoo.com, AOL.com.
Each computer on Internet has one or more than one numerical addresses to identify its location on Web. The numerical addresses are called IP. Here is an example of IP address: 18.104.22.168 However, numbers like this are hard for human memory and domain names are designed to relieve the memory burden.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is the non-profit corporation that was formed to assume responsibility for the IP address space allocation, protocol parameter assignment, domain name system management, and root server system management functions previously performed under U.S. Government contract by IANA and other entities. For more information please visit ICANN website:ICANN
Domain Name Server converts domain names into IP addresses which computers can recognize. For example, if someone wants to visit 'Yahoo' (www.yahoo.com), DNS translates this domain name into its IP address 22.214.171.124.This process enables the computer to have access for the web server directed by the domain name.
Top Level Domain
A domain name consists of two or more words that are separated by dots. The word at the right end is called the
top-level domain name. The following are some most frequently used top-level domain names:
*.COM--is used for commercial organizations. It is the most common top-level domain name. Anyone can register domain names ended with .COM.
*.NET--is originally applied to Internet organizations such as Internet service and maintenance providers. It is now available for everyone.
*.ORG--is designed for all kinds of organizations including non-profit organizations. Anyone can register.ORG ended domain names.
The top level domains with two letters like .cn, .uk, .de and .jp are called country code top level domains. (ccTLDs).
.cn is the top level domain of China and its registration is supervised by ICANN. The second level domain names
ended with .cn are simply called national domain names. Different counties have their own regulations and policies
for registering the second-level country code domain names. It is recommended that you consult domain name
registering organizations or companies for the relevant policies and terms. Some domain names registering
companies provide top level country code registration except for registering top-level domains (.com, .net and .org).
ICANN does not authorize registrars to provide services for country code domain names registration.
Second Level Domains
The next level of top level domain names is what we usually call second level domain names. Take domainpeople.com as an example, registrars provide second-level domain names ended with .com. The possible format of domain names is sothine.domainpeople.com. In this case, 'something' here is called the host name or third-level domain name.

If your account has enough remaining sum, the rest registration steps will start and you will finish registration within a few seconds or minutes (depending on the conditions of the network). You will then receive notification for the successful registration by E-mail address you provided when acquiring membership. After this step, you are able to use the domain name. If your account has insufficient fund, the system will send you a mail notifying you to replenish your account. You can restart registration process after you remit the necessary fund to our company and confirm it on this system.
This is a real-time registration system. Domain names registered on this system will be sent to Registry database. After you successfully registered, you can find your information on whois database. After you setup DNS, your domain name is ready for use.
InterNIC.net updates information of domain names through Registry main database. The information is refreshed one time everyday (at GMT 6:00-8:00 or eastern time of USA 1:00-3:00). Due to this update procedure, you can not find the information of your domain name instantly after registration. In most cases, you are able to find the information of the domain name until 8:30 (GMT) next day on InterNIC.
The information of registration provided by most websites come from InterNIC.net so that you can't find the domain you have just registered on those sites or the search result is 'this domain name is available'.
There are several possibilities in this case:
1. Your domain name is improper or your DNS has an error.
2. Your domain name has been registered.
3. The conneciton with Registry database is shutdown.
4. Registry database is busy.
At GMT 6:00~8:00 (Bejing time 14:00~16:00), because the main database Registry conducts the data transference(transfer information of the main database to InterNIC.net), the main database and the network system are heavily loaded. The registration process of this system will be greatly affected. The following problems may occur during this time: long registration process, unsuccessful registration, network connection shut down or registration process interrupted etc. Under such circumstances, please do not keep trying. You can wait and register until GMT 8:00 (Beijing time 16:00)”£We strongly suggest: Do not register during this period.
