A domain name is a distinctive address that you're able to get through a registrar company. All devices that are linked to the Web, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, for that reason the domain system was introduced as an easy means to distinguish a particular website on the Web. As a result, your website is available at www.domain.com instead of 188.8.131.52, for example. Your domain name has 2 parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you will be able to select, and the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register a new domain name through any registrar or migrate an existing domain name between registrars in a couple of 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 completed. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones as well. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while some others require regional presence or even a business license.
