For United States top-level domains to reflect organizational and political structure of the global network, although some of these domains (com, org, net) are now also distributed outside the United States. Domenoe 2-nd level name must be unique within the domain of the top-level domain name 3-tier (subdomain), in turn, must be unique within the domain of level 2, etc.
