A domain name is a special address that you can get through a registrar company. All units that are connected to the Internet, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite hard to remember, for this reason the domain name system was created as an easy means to distinguish a given site on the Web. By result of this, your website is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for instance. Your domain name has two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you are able to select, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain via any type of registrar or migrate a current domain between registrars in a few simple steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anyone, while some others will require local presence or a business license.
