What the heck is a DOMAIN CB?

Well, it's appropriately named. Why? Your domain is your castle. Your home. Your space.
When you look at an internet address (url), whatever comes before the .com, .gov, .biz, etc. is the domain.

http://www.yahoo.com Yahoo is the domain!
http://noclicky.blogspot.com Blogspot is the domain.

The .com, .gov, .biz, is 'sposed to tell what "kind" of domain it is.
.gov is the government.
.biz means it's a business.
.com being the most popular.

When you see the likes of .uk, .de, etc. these are countries.

So, following up to the previous post about Phishing, that's what phishing does...the email makes you think it's about one place, the link or url tries to send you someplace you don't want to be.

Make sense?
