Domain name search at 1&1: Find your perfect web address
What is a domain name?
A domain name is your unique address on the internet, it is what allows people to find your site. It consists of a set of words, signs, or numbers and ends with a top level domain after the last dot, i.e. yourname.com. In the US, the most popular top level domains are usually .com, .net, or .org. In order to ensure that no-one else claims your domain name, you must register it. National authorities like ICANN will hold a domain name for the owner.
