A domain name is a unique address that you're able to obtain via a registrar company. All units that are connected to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather difficult to remember, so the domain name platform was introduced as an easy means to recognize a site on the Internet. By result of this, your site can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for example. Your domain name has 2 parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you can choose, and the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register a new domain via any sort of registrar or migrate an existing domain name between registrars in just a few easy steps. When you choose to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been carried out. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while some others require regional presence or even a business license.
