A domain is a special address that you're able to acquire from a registrar company. All of the devices which are connected to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very hard to remember, that's why the domain platform was introduced as an easy means to distinguish a website on the Internet. Thus, your website can be reached at www.domain.com rather than 126.96.36.199, for example. Your domain name features two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you're able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You can register a new domain name via any registrar or migrate an existing domain name between registrars in a few easy steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process is finalized. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will need local presence or a business license.
