Top Level Domains .TLDs

The three major .TLDs, .a.k.a. “top level domains”, .com, .net, .org, are no longer the only considerations in domain name ownership. In the time since ROCKHOST.COM, Inc.’s inception in 2001, more than 1300 top level domain names have been recognized. The Verisign executive summary breaks down over 350 million total domain name registrations as of the last quarter. 400 of which are available through ROCKHOST.COM, Inc.




Years after the dot com explosion, a shortage of concise one word domain names lead to the addition of a hundred new top level domain names (.TLDs). Subsequently, the others soon followed suite. Scroll to the bottom of this page to see a complete listing of ROCKHOST.COM, Inc. top level domains.

The Dot Com Domain Name

I’m not a big blogger, but it’s down to either this or my 2013 taxes. So, hello, good morning, and thank you for reading.

With all the confusion as of late regarding new land rush domains, .band., .bike., etc., soothe yourself with peace of mind. Now is a better time than any to invest in .com and .net. Both TLDs are the most widely recognizable in the world. Take out the guess work. Register today.

I’m proud to say I own the .com for my band and business.

A Decade Dot Com

This month marks the 10 year anniversary of ROCKHOST.COM. Been a long time comin’, that’s for sure. Since our inception, the Internet has grown rampantly, expanding much like the universe. No literally, by about one zettabyte, or ten to the twenty first power, to be exact (NERD ALERT!). Datacenters now use 1/5 of the world’s energy. Humanity’s dependency on technology is an addiction stronger than foreign oil or the coffee at NASA. And I’m no better. I’m not gon’na lie. I sleep with my iPhone. On the rare occurance there is a server outage I receive a 911 SMS alert – a kind of pop culture pager for geek emergencies I suppose. Meanwhile, my teenage son is sending over 10,000 text messages a month. That’s a 16 year old male people. The times they are a-changin’.

In 1982 the Commodore 64 was introduced for $595 and held 320 kilobytes of data per floppy disk, which most notably had to be flipped like a record – 160 kilobytes per side. Oh, and the memory you ask? Take a wild guess (hint: 64 ???). Nowadays devices come with 1,000 times the storage if not more. Over the past decade web hosting standards have dramatically escalated as well, bringing us to what I can only describe as an excess amount of disk space at our disposal. So long story long, if you are an old school ROCKHOST.COM customer and would like to request an account review we may be more than willing to increase your disk quota and possibly your bandwidth limit free of charge. Please hit us up through the Client Portal by opening a new Support Ticket.
