    Creating subdomains

    Hello,

    How does a a company like youtube or facebook claim there extensions .com,.fr, .it, all over the world?
    I cant hardly belief they all register those adresses seperatly.

    Thanks

    There are different domain registrars that are allowed to only sell .fr .it etc... you need to find a registrar based in those countries.

    They use markmonitor.com - a registrar that specializes in managing corporate domain portfolios and in online brand protection.

    Facebook operates its own massive server farms in the US and in Sweden.

    No i ask this because it just refers immediately too .com and doesnt stay on .fr for example.

    They just redirect all their other ccTLD domains to their main .com site.
    There's no such thing as an unmanaged server - It's actually self-managed. Worth remembering next time you're looking for someone to complain to.
