A domain is a distinctive address that you are able to get through a registrar company. All units that are linked to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty difficult to remember, because of this the domain name platform was launched as an easy means to recognize a given site on the Internet. Using this method, your website is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for example. Your domain name includes two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you can select, plus the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register your new domain name through any kind of registrar or move an existing domain name between registrars in a couple of simple steps. When 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're country-code ones as well. Some of them can be registered by anybody, while others demand local presence or a business license.
