A domain is a unique address that you are able to buy through a registrar company. All of the devices which are connected to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite hard to remember, so the domain platform was introduced as an easy means to distinguish a website on the World Wide Web. Thus, your web site is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 18.104.22.168, for example. Your domain name possesses two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you're 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 a new domain via any kind of registrar or migrate an existing domain name between registrars in just a few simple steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones as well. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while others demand local presence or even a business license.
