A domain name is a special address that you can acquire via a registrar company. All of the devices which are linked to the Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very hard to remember, for this reason the domain platform was launched as an easy way to distinguish some website on the Web. As a result, your web site is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for example. Your domain name features 2 separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you can pick, and the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register your new domain name through any kind of registrar or transfer an existing domain between registrars in a couple of simple steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar when the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will require local presence or even a business license.
