The terms or words domain names, hosting, registrar, registrant, website are given the usual meanings described by ICANN and government entities. See Wikipedia.org.
A domain name is the name of a website (roughly). The US government supported (with money, resources) the development of links among computers. It created an entity, ICANN, that assigns and administers domain names. ICANN authorizes entities named “registries” to take care of top-level domain names such as .com (dot com). It authorizes entities named “registrars” to sell lower level domains to persons (e.g., EFA.com). Persons (registrants) pay fees (many annually) to registrars to create and maintain (e.g., records, infrastructure, links) a domain name, pay to have computers to host a website accessed via a domain name (e.g., hosting).
Definitions and responsibilities for domain names
A domain name is a name that describes a type of administrative control in the Internet. The Domain Name System (DNS) provides rules, procedures, policies to assign domain names. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name.
A domain name consists of several parts such as optimalpolicies.com. The term on the right is the top-level domain. There is a hierarchy or priority going from right to left. Terms further to the left may be used to mislead users, so be careful when reading a domain name. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domain_name
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is the non-profit organization that oversees the assignment of both IP addresses and domain names. It has agreements with registries and registrars that provide the foundation for the WHOIS system. See https://whois.icann.org/en/domain-name-registration-process. ICANN and a few companies manage the top-level domains. See https://icannwiki.org/Generic_top-level_domain.
We use several domain names to create several websites. These T&C apply to all Services or Websites we provide to you. The T&C consist of this document, disclaimers and notices, and any other terms in our websites. Together, we refer to these documents as the “T&C”.

There is no assurance that any statement contained in an article is true, correct or precise. Law varies from place to place and it evolves over time. Even if a statement is accurate, it may only be accurate in the jurisdiction of the person posting the information or for a rare situation or for a hypothetical. Science, medicine, law changes frequently. Even if a statement is accurate, it may not apply to you or your situation.
Our information provided is, at best, of a general nature and cannot substitute for the advice of a licensed professional, i.e. by a competent authority who can apply it to the particular circumstances of your case. Please contact a local bar association, law society or similar association of jurists in your legal jurisdiction to obtain a referral to a competent legal professional.

Alternative version of Warnings, Disclaimers, Notices
The documents in these websites are presented for entertainment purposes only. They are not meant to be a substitute for professional medical care or attention by a qualified practitioner, nor should they be inferred as such. YOU are not our patient. ALWAYS check with your doctor or professional (e.g., lawyer, architect, dentist, etc.) if you have any questions or concerns about your condition, or before starting a new program of treatment or if you have any questions or concerns about your life, We are not responsible or liable, directly or indirectly, for any damages resulting from the use (or misuse) of information contained in or implied by these pages or website.
We are not licensed attorneys. We do not provide legal advice or legal services. YOU are not our client.
We only provide information for entertainment. Our information is not accurate and is not complete.
The material in this web site could make you laugh. It may help you ask intelligent questions and understand issues. Many suggestions made here require sophisticated medical tests in order to be implemented, or knowledge of law or mathematics or statistics or biophysics or accounting or something else. They require the advice and guidance of a physician, nutritionist, licensed lawyer, or individual with appropriate expertise. They are NOT intended to replace your doctor or to teach you how to treat yourself or replace a lawyer or your parents, etc.
All health, medical and legal issues are complex. There are too many hidden factors involved for it to be safe for lay people to attempt to treat themselves without an expert health care provider. The wrong diagnosis or the wrong treatment, however well intended, could make the disease worse, and would ultimately make it more difficult to diagnose the correct disorder. Similar for law, finances, and even growing plants.
To make complex topics available to the general public, we have simplified the material presented. Therefore, some of the statements made are incomplete from a scientific or legal point of view, they omit or misrepresent material facts or contain inaccuracies. It is impossible for us to present all material facts. There are tens of thousands of pages in journals, books and websites devoted to these matters.
Because each person is different, it is impossible for us to provide advice that is appropriate for each person who may read this information. Even when we discuss general principles that may benefit humans, they may not be good for you specifically. Your decision requires a balance of risks, benefits, convenience, time, money, and other factors which we do not know. Your health provider or licensed lawyer may help you tailor the ideas presented here to your unique needs.
We review thousands of publications, scientific articles, web sites, and news media reports. We comment on them about new ideas, new treatment options, new legal issues, how government works, how to perhaps save time and money, etc. We may include references for you to verify the information presented. However, we cannot verify the information presented. The information we present are our rough opinions and could be false or misleading. It may contain incorrect statements of a material fact, or omit a material fact necessary to prevent a statement from being false or misleading.
Our approach is to read the most original source, such as a specific law, or specific scientific article and CME courses. We prefer not to rely on secondary or other sources, such as comments by somebody about comments they read somewhere sometime. Sources we use include BMJ.com, Healthaffairs.com, SCOTUSBLOG for Supreme Court cases, DOJ for their cases. DoJ has a nice section with documents they file on cases.
We are often critical in the analysis, trying to identify logical errors or flaws in data or evidence.
