A domain name is a special address that you're able to obtain via a registrar company. All the units that are connected to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, so the domain platform was launched as an easy way to identify a particular website on the World Wide Web. As a result, your site can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for example. Your domain name has two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you'll be able to pick, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You'll be able to register your new domain via any kind of registrar or move a current domain name between registrars in just a few simple steps. In the event that you choose to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process has been completed. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while others will require regional presence or a business license.
