A domain name is a distinctive address that you're able to obtain via a registrar company. All the devices that are connected to the Internet, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite difficult to remember, because of this the domain system was launched as an easy way to distinguish a certain website on the Web. Using this method, your site can be reached at www.domain.com rather than 188.8.131.52, for example. A domain name includes 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you'll be able to pick, and the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain via any registrar or move an existing domain between registrars in a few simple steps. Whenever you decide to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process is completed. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anyone, while others demand regional presence or a business license.
