A domain name is a distinctive address that you are able to get from a registrar company. All of the units which are connected to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite difficult to remember, that's why the domain platform was launched as an easy way to identify a particular site on the Web. Using this method, your web site can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for instance. Your domain name includes two different parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you'll be able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You'll be able to register your new domain name through any kind of registrar or migrate an active domain between registrars in a few easy steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar when the transfer process is finalized. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while some others demand regional presence or a business license.
