A domain is a unique address that you can acquire from a registrar company. All the devices that are connected to the Internet, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite hard to remember, for that reason the domain name platform was launched as an easy way to recognize a web site on the World Wide Web. Thus, your web site can be reached at www.domain.com instead of 220.127.116.11, for instance. Your domain name includes two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you'll be able to pick, and the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register a new domain name via any registrar or migrate a current domain between registrars in just a few easy steps. In the event that you decide to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been completed. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while others will need regional presence or even a business license.
