A top level domain, or 'TLD' as it is better known, is that part of the web address that comes after the right of the dot. .Com, .Net, .Org, and now .Vegas are examples of TLDs.
A Registrar is a company that takes registrations for second level domain names. GoDaddy, Network Solutions, eNom, 1&1, and Tucows are examples of ICANN accredited registrars. A second level domain name is the name that is located to the left of the dot. Registrars also offer other value added services such as web hosting, email, website development, and auction services that give life and functionality to domain names.
A Registry is the company that controls and operates a TLD. They offer second level domain registrations to Registrars, typically at a 'wholesale' price. Registrars in turn make available those second level domain registrations to end users who are referred to as the domain name registrants.
It is currently projected that the .Vegas TLD will be ready to accept registrations in the second quarter of 2014.
