A domain is a unique address that you're able to get through a registrar company. All the devices which are connected to the Internet, such as web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite hard to remember, so the domain name system was introduced as an easy means to recognize some web site on the World Wide Web. As a result, your site can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 22.214.171.124, for example. Your domain name features two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you will be able to choose, and the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register a new domain through any sort of registrar or move an active domain between registrars in a couple of easy steps. In the event that you choose to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been finalized. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anyone, while some others require local presence or even a business license.
