Domain Names (and Alternatives)
Note. FrontPage publication (to a Web
server) requires: the use of a purchased domain name; 2) a subweb
provided by an organization or commercial entity; or 3) a subdomain
name. Ad-supported Web hosting providers that support FrontPage
extensions allow Web site developers to publish to a subdomain name.
The subweb configuration within a Web server is common for Web sites
with multiple individuals or organizational units that are responsible
for creating and updating specific areas (e.g., FAQ, products,
services, academic units within an education site, or one site with
multiple providers of slightly different goods or services). Caveat.
Domain names are best purchased directly through an ICANN-approved
registrar, and not through a broker or subcontractor affiliate of these
ICANN-Accredited Registrars (Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, Marina del
ICANN provides a list of registrars, their country, and the Top-Level Domain names they are authorized to register.
(Note: Some non-accredited Web hosting companies provide a domain name registration service for their customers.) Registering a domain name through a non-ICANN-accredited Web hosting provider (or subcontractor) is a questionable business practice. Often, these businesses are listed as the administrator for the domain names they register, and not the owner. This administrative status limits the authority of a domain name owner. Such an arrangement can be problematic if the ownership of a domain name is challenged, and when owners change their Web hosting provider.
