A domain name is a unique address that you are able to acquire from a registrar company. All of the units that are connected to the Internet, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, for that reason the domain platform was created as an easy means to distinguish some website on the Web. Using this method, your website can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for example. Your domain name possesses two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you'll be able to pick, plus the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register your new domain through any registrar or transfer an existing domain between registrars in a few simple steps. When you choose to do the latter, your domain will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process has been finalized. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. Some of them can be registered by anybody, while others will need regional presence or even a business license.
