Internet addresses are really a series of numerals, but can be aliased with easy-to-remember alphabetic addresses. These alpha domains are usually easy to distinguish. A list of all domains can be found at: Domain Name Registries Around the World. Common domains include .edu (US educational), .gov (US government), .org (US organizations, usually non-profit), .int (international organizations), and .us (US state and local entities).
