A domain name is a unique address that you're able to acquire through a registrar company. All the units which are connected to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty hard to remember, that's why the domain name platform was launched as an easy way to distinguish a particular website on the Internet. By result of this, your web site is available at www.domain.com rather than 188.8.131.52, for instance. Your domain name has two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you will 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 name via any registrar or move an existing domain between registrars in a couple of easy steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process is carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will need local presence or a business license.
