A domain is a special address that you're able to get through a registrar company. All units that are connected to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather difficult to remember, for that reason the domain system was introduced as an easy means to distinguish a certain web site on the Web. Using this method, your web site is available at www.domain.com instead of 126.96.36.199, for example. Your domain name possesses 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you can pick, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain name via any sort of registrar or transfer an existing domain name between registrars in a couple of easy steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been finalized. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will require regional presence or a business license.
