A domain name is a special address that you are able to obtain through a registrar company. All the devices that are linked to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather difficult to remember, so the domain system was launched as an easy means to identify some web site on the Internet. Thus, your website can be reached at www.domain.com instead of 220.127.116.11, for example. Your domain name has two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you're able to select, and the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register your new domain through any registrar or move an existing domain name between registrars in a couple of simple steps. In the event that you choose to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process is finalized. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while others demand regional presence or even a business license.
