Full Answer

A domain name is a label that refers to the Internet Protocol address of a server. The top level domain is the part of a domain name suffixed after the last period. A domain registry is responsible for issuing and maintaining domain names for each top level domain. The domain name system is ultimately overseen by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, an international not-for-profit partnership.

Domain name registries are free to set pricing for their top level domain. The registries of five countries offer free domain names: Tokelau, Mali, Gabon, Central African Republic and Equatorial Guinea. Anyone can register these domains, not just residents of those countries. Alternatively, many web hosting companies offer domain names for free as part of a paid hosting package. Companies offering this include Bluehost, SiteGround, InMotion Hosting, iPage and Arxive.
