The .COM domain is one of the generic Top-Level Domains that you are able to choose from when you register your website online. COM is an unsponsored TLD that you can freely use for your website unless somebody else had already registered your website name with .COM as its TLDCOM is abbreviation from “commercial” because it was initially intended to serve only different commercial organizations. The first .COM domains were registered back in 1985 when the first domain names within the Domain Name System were created. .COM is now the most widely used Top Level Domain.


.COM Registration Requirements

Most TLDs have certain restrictions for registration that depend on the purposes of the websites using certain TLDs. Although the .COM Top-Level Domain was originally created for businesses and companies, now it’s much more widely used. However, today every organization (commercial or non-profit) or everyone from any part of the world can freely register a .COM domain; there are no restrictions and requirements for registration and the domain can be used for a wide range of purposes. The registry for the .COM TLD is VeriSign and you can make .COM registration with any accredited registrar. Since 1985 more than 100 million domains with the .COM gTLD has been registered.
