A domain name is a unique address that you're able to purchase via a registrar company. All the units that are linked to the Web, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather difficult to remember, because of this the domain platform was launched as an easy means to distinguish a particular site on the Internet. Using this method, your site is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 126.96.36.199, for instance. A domain name possesses two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you can pick, plus the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register your new domain name via any registrar or migrate a current domain between registrars in a few easy steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar the moment the transfer process has been finalized. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while some others need local presence or even a business license.
