A domain name is a special address that you are able to get via a registrar company. All the units which are linked to the Internet, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, for this reason the domain platform was created as an easy way to recognize a certain web site on the Web. As a result, your website is available at www.domain.com instead of 126.96.36.199, for example. A domain name possesses 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you will be able to choose, and the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register your new domain through any kind of registrar or move a current domain name between registrars in a couple of easy steps. If you choose to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while some others will need local presence or a business license.
