The "dot" is just a seperator so the computer knows where the name of the website ends.The "com" stands for commercial and there are many more extensions for different types of websites. .net is for networks, .gov is government run websites, .org is for an organization such as a charity, .edu is for an education facility. There are many more. These extension serve to give some structure and categorize the internet to a small degree
