A domain is a distinctive address that you can get via a registrar company. All the units that are linked to the Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, for this reason the domain platform was introduced as an easy means to distinguish some web site on the Web. In this way, your website can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for instance. A domain name possesses 2 parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you'll be able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register a new domain name via any sort of registrar or migrate an active domain name between registrars in just a few easy steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process has been carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will need local presence or a business license.
