A domain is a unique address that you are able to acquire through a registrar company. All of the units that are connected 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 platform was created as an easy way to recognize a site on the Web. Using this method, your website is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 220.127.116.11, for example. A domain name has two parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you can select, 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 name through any type of registrar or migrate an active domain name between registrars in a couple of easy steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been finalized. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will require local presence or a business license.
