Q2. How can you identify whether a website is commercial or not?

Ans. A website can be identified whether it is a commercial or not with the help of its domain extension. Domain extension is a component of a URL which specifies the type of website. The domain extension of a URL uses standard codes to represent the type of website. For example, .com is used to specify that the website is created for commercial purposes. The URL http://www. google.com contains com as the domain extension, which implies that the website is a commercial website.

Some popular domain extensions used in different websites are as follows:
