A domain is a distinctive address that you're able to get from a registrar company. All of the devices that are connected to the Internet, including web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite difficult to remember, for this reason the domain name system was created as an easy means to distinguish a web site on the World Wide Web. By result of this, your web site can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 126.96.36.199, for instance. A domain name has 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you will be able to pick, plus the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register a new domain name through any registrar or migrate an active domain between registrars in a couple of easy steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar when the transfer process has been carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while others demand regional presence or even a business license.
