What is a Domain?


Esther Dyson’sWhat is in a Domain Name?” reminded me of the excellent and classic paper by Mark R. Horton, “What is a Domain?” written back in 1984. Although old, it is a classic you can share with people who want to start learning more.

    The classic paper link seems to be down. There is a copy here http://web.archive.org/web/20080515074608/http://www.dns.net/dnsrd/docs/domain.pdf

      Thanks! It seems that the DNSRD is down, which is a pitty really. I copied the link to the article from Wikipedia, and since I’ve already had my copy of the paper for years, I did not check whether it was working :(

      I’ve always thought of the DNSRD as one of those sites that will stay up forever.
