There are three parts of a domain name: Top-level, second level, and third level.

  • top level refers to the end of the domain (such as .com) and identifies the type of organization.
  • second level domain is the common name identifier such as “Google” and identifies the organization’s website.
  • third level domain is at the beginning of the domain name (e.g. www) and identifies a particular host server.
