What is a domain name?
A domain name is a Web address, such as godaddy.com, that is linked to an IP address (which represents a physical point on the Internet). When someone types a domain name into a Web browser, the requested Web page displays.

A domain name consists of a top-level and a second-level domain. A top-level domain (TLD) is the part of the domain name located to the right of the dot (godaddy.com). The most common top-level domains are .COM, .NET, and .ORG. Some other popular top-level domains are .BIZ, .INFO, .NAME and .WS. These TLDs have certain guidelines but are, for the most part, available to any registrant, anywhere in the world.

The part of the domain name located to the left of the dot — "godaddy," in this case — is called the second-level domain (SLD) name. The second-level domain name is the "readable" part of the address and refers to the organization or entity behind the Internet address. Second-level domain names must be registered with an Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)-accredited registrar.

My First Review Payment

Today I've received my first payment for a review from Blogsvertise. It about a month after a review was approve before receiving the payment. Blogsvertise is different than other paid post programs because they offer authors or bloggers to write about a certain topic instead of letting bloggers to apply for themselves. This feature reduce the competition for popular topics but bloggers will have to wait until they are selected to write for a topic. After my review was approved, I checked the Blogsvertise website and they have stated they date I'm going to receive my payment. Today I received the payment to my Paypal account just as they had promised. So I don't think it is a scam or what others might say. The difference is only how they manage the service.

I did read some forum threads claiming that it is a scam or they have not paid the bloggers' earnings. The threads that claimed they didn't receive any payments were dated from 2006 to 2007. Maybe Blogsvertise had upgraded their service and realise their mistakes. Hopefully the problem won't happen to me or anybody in the future. Somebody did claim that his post was rejected twice even after modification. Article quality and advertiser's demand are always something to take care about when writing a review. As for now, I still don't have any issue with Blogsvertise and I just hope more opportunities will come to me in the future.
