What is a domain name?

The domain name is your internet address, i.e. the place where users who want to visit your site will find you. To ensure that a domain name will be exclusively yours, it is necessary to register it, i.e. to pay an amount (depending on the ending) that will allow you to use it exclusively.

All domain names are of the form https://www.yourname.tld. [yourname] is the track that corresponds to your own site and is chosen exclusively by you. It can be anything that represents you, as long as it hasn't been claimed by someone else before you. [tld] is the part of the suffix that your domain name will have. The suffix can indicate that it is a company site (.com), an organization (.org) or give the site a geographic destination (.gr for a site located in Greece).

Through Top.Host, you can register domain names with the following endings:

.gr,,,,,, .el, .com, .net, .info, .eu, .org, .parts, . club, .me, .top, .party, .email, .coffee, .website, .work, .site, .holiday, .city, .estate, .science, .photography

By registering a domain name from Top.Host, the domain name is registered in the respective registry, as a result of which its uniqueness is ensured and no third party has the right to register it again, as long as you renew it before it expires.

The time period for which you can register a domain name varies depending on its ending. Specifically, for the endings offered by Top.Host:

Domain names ending in .gr can be registered for an even number of years and for a duration of 2 to 10 years.

Domain names ending in .parts, .top, .party, .site, .city, .science can be registered for 1 year.

Domain names bearing any of the other endings mentioned above can be registered for 1 - 10 years.
