A domain is a distinctive address that you're able to acquire from a registrar company. All the devices which are linked to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, for this reason the domain platform was launched as an easy way to identify a given site on the Internet. Thus, your website is available at www.domain.com instead of 188.8.131.52, for example. A domain name has 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you will be able to pick, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register your new domain through any sort of registrar or transfer a current domain between registrars in a couple of easy steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Some of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will require regional presence or even a business license.
