Domain names Edit

Definition Edit

Deactivation is the process by which a domain name address no longer translates into an IP address that can be used by the Domain Name System (DNS) to locate a website.

Overview Edit

"When a domain name is deactivated, the Domain Name System (DNS) will no longer have the information needed to resolve the domain name to its corresponding Internet Protocol (IP) number(s), effectively disabling the domain name as a tool for locating the related computers or organizations."[1]
