Define Domain name with example. Write down the name of the top level domains with their purposes.

Domain name: Computers on the net has unique IP addresses. These addresses contain numbers which are very difficult to remember for us. That’s why, to make it easy to remember they are replaced by alias which are called domain name. These domain names are also unique for each computer. Example : funny.comedian-action.com

.com – For commercial organizations
.edu – For educational sites
.org – For non-profitable organizations
.net – For internet service provider
.gov – For government agencies
.mil – For military purpose
