Evaluating Websites

 

Know Your Website Domain Extensions

A domain extension is a two- or three-character code indicating the country or category assigned to a website.

In www.wingate.edu the domain extension is .edu indicating that the website is for an educational institution.

Other domain extensions include:

.edu education
.com commercial
.gov government
.mil military
.org organization
.net network

The domain extension can be an indicator of a site's credibility, but not always. Use the tips in the "Evaluating Websites" box before using the information from any site for an assignment.

Hint: To make a Google search more effective, use the Advanced Search option to limit your search results to a particular domain extension.
