A domain is a distinctive address that you're able to acquire from a registrar company. All of the units which are linked to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, so the domain system was created as an easy means to identify a certain website on the Web. As a result, your site is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for instance. Your domain name has two different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you will be able to select, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You'll be able to register a new domain name from any sort of registrar or move an existing domain between registrars in a couple of easy steps. Whenever you decide to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process is completed. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones as well. Many of them can be registered by anyone, while others need local presence or a business license.
