A domain is a special address that you're able to obtain from a registrar company. All of the units which are linked to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty difficult to remember, for this reason the domain name platform was created as an easy means to distinguish a certain web site on the Web. Thus, your site is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 220.127.116.11, for example. A domain name includes 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual web site name that you can pick, and the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register your new domain name via any sort of registrar or migrate an existing domain name between registrars in a couple of easy steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones as well. Many of them can be registered by anyone, while others will need regional presence or a business license.
