Domains are accepted to divide the levels. They are determined by the number of parts of the domain name.
First level domains are: lv, ru, com. They indicate the area on the Internet, belonging to a country, an international organization, a region, etc.
For example, the first level domain indicates that the page belongs to Latvia.
Here are the top-level domains:
- com – commerce; success – education;
- net – network projects;
- gov – government;
- org – non-governmental organizations;
- lv – Latvia
- es – spain
The first level domain classification is completely conditional. Pages that have a domain ending in lv may not have anything to do with Latvia. All domains are open and can be registered by any resident for personal purposes.
The second-level domain is the part of the domain name separated by a point from the first level domain. For example, in the domain zone you can register a second-level domain with your company name – yourname.lv.
The third level domain is considered to be a subdomain in relation to the second-level domain, for example, subdomain.yourname.lv. These are rather rare phenomena on the Internet, and usually, they are made free of charge.
