A domain is a special address that you're able to get via a registrar company. All devices that are connected to the Internet, including web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite hard to remember, for this reason the domain platform was launched as an easy means to identify some website on the Internet. As a result, your site can be reached at www.domain.com in place of 220.127.116.11, for instance. Your domain name includes two parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you are able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You'll be able to register your new domain via any registrar or move an active domain name between registrars in a couple of easy steps. In the event that you choose to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process is carried out. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. A number of them can be registered by anyone, while some others will require local presence or even a business license.
