A domain is a special address that you can buy from a registrar company. All of the devices which are connected to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite difficult to remember, so the domain name platform was created as an easy means to identify a certain website on the World Wide Web. By result of this, your website is available at www.domain.com in place of 126.96.36.199, for instance. Your domain name possesses 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you'll be able to select, and the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register your new domain name through any type of registrar or migrate an active domain name between registrars in a couple of simple steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been finalized. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. A number of them can be registered by anyone, while some others require local presence or a business license.
