A domain is a distinctive address that you can obtain from a registrar company. All units which are connected to the Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty hard to remember, because of this the domain system was created as an easy means to distinguish a certain website on the World Wide Web. As a result, your web site can be reached at www.domain.com instead of 220.127.116.11, for example. A domain name has two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you're able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You'll be able to register a new domain from any registrar or migrate an active domain name between registrars in a couple of easy steps. In the event that you choose to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while others need local presence or a business license.
