dot-com

(1) A commercial Internet domain name that uses the dot-com (.com) suffix at the end of the address; for example, www.computerlanguage.com is the domain name of the publisher of this encyclopedia. Since dot-com domains were used by all major corporations, the Internet became known as the "dot-com" world. See Internet domain name, dot-com company, dot-com bubble, not-com and dot-con.

(2) The .com domain spelled out in an e-mail address on a Web site to prevent a spambot from identifying it. For example, instead of "alex@computerlanguage.com," the address is written as "alex at computerlanguage dot com." See spambot.
