A domain name is a distinctive address that you're able to get through a registrar company. All of the units which are linked to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very difficult to remember, for that reason the domain name platform was launched as an easy way to recognize a certain site on the World Wide Web. In this way, your website can be reached at www.domain.com instead of 18.104.22.168, for instance. A domain name features two different parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you're able to select, plus the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain from any sort of registrar or move an active domain between registrars in a few simple steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process has been carried out. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anyone, while others will need regional presence or a business license.
