A domain is a distinctive address that you can acquire from a registrar company. All devices that are linked to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather difficult to remember, that's why the domain platform was launched as an easy way to identify a particular website on the World Wide Web. Using this method, your website can be reached at www.domain.com instead of 184.108.40.206, for instance. Your domain name possesses 2 parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you're able to pick, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register your new domain through any type of registrar or move a current domain between registrars in a couple of easy steps. In the event that you choose to do the latter, your domain will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been carried out. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Some of them can be registered by anybody, while some others need local presence or even a business license.
