A domain name can be any combination of letters and numbers and contains a specific domain name extension (also known as Top-Level Domains, or TLDs for short), such as .co.za, .com, .net and more.
An example of a domain name – http://sub.example.com.
All of these domain levels are separated with a "dot".
