A domain is a unique address that you are able to purchase from a registrar company. All of the units which are linked to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather difficult to remember, so the domain platform was created as an easy means to distinguish some site on the Internet. By result of this, your website can be reached at www.domain.com rather than 126.96.36.199, for instance. Your domain name possesses two different parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you'll be able to select, and the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You'll be able to register your new domain name from any sort of registrar or transfer a current domain between registrars in just a few simple steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar once the transfer process is finalized. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while some others will need regional presence or a business license.
