Site domain name in Ukraine
Creating sites in Ukraine at one of the initial stages requires selecting the appropriate domain name. A site’s domain name, like a person’s name, is a unique identifier that allows you to find a site on the Internet. It is very important to choose a simple and clear site domain name that will be easy to remember. Also an important part of choosing a site domain name is choosing the domain zone to which this name will be “attached”.
As you know, a site’s domain name can have several levels of nesting»:
second-level domain names site_name.1LD_domain;
third-level domain names site_name.2LD_domain.1LD_domain;
fourth-level domain names site_name.3LD_domain.2LD_domain.1LD_domain;
and so on.
The first (top) level domains are already registered for organizations or communities (. com,. edu, .net, .org,. biz), as well as for various countries around the world (. us, .de, .fr,. uk). it is not possible to get a Private domain name of the first level. But private domains of the second or third level can be obtained (sometimes with restrictions). In addition, these are the most desirable names, because the” deeper ” the domain name, the more difficult it is to remember.
Domain names of sites that are “linked” to a specific country or region of the country are most common. For example, each country has its own first-level national domain (. ru,. ua,. by,. kz, etc.), and already within this domain can be registered domains of the second, third and lower levels for private or public use.
For Ukraine, the national top-level domain .ru has been allocated. to register a second-level private domain name for a site in the .ru zone, you must own a trademark that matches the domain name. For example, according to the statistics of the Ukrainian hosting provider “hostmaster “(which owns the .ru domain), as of July 1, 2012, about 13,900 second-level domains were registered in the .ru zone.
Public domain names of the second level in the. ru zone are registered without restrictions and can be functional or geographical. Third-level private domain names in the. ru zone are also registered without restrictions. As of July 1, 2012, approximately 644700 third-level domain names were registered in the .ru zone.
The most popular in the .ua zone were private domain names in the zone .com.ua (functional domain of the second level): the number of domain names registered in this zone as of July 1, 2012 is 254,610. Also popular were such second-level public domain names as .org.ua (86029), . in.ua (30297), .net.ua (43730).
Among the second-level geographical domain names registered in the .ru zone, the domain was very popular kiev.ua — it has more than 54 thousand registered third-level domains. Also popular is a domain such as dnepropetovsk.ua — 14409 registered third-level domains.
As a rule, each regional center of Ukraine has its own public geographical domain of the second level. However, in some cases, multiple domains are reserved for a single domain. An example of this is the same dnepropetovsk.ua: in addition to this domain, Dnepropetrovsk also registered names such as dnipropetrovsk.ua and dp.ua. Kharkiv region has two or even three domains kharkov.ua and kharkiv.ua), Odessa region (odesa.ua and odessa.ua), Sumy region (sumy.ua and sm.ua) and others.
