A domain name is a unique address that you can get via a registrar company. All devices that are linked to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite difficult to remember, for that reason the domain name platform was introduced as an easy means to distinguish a certain web site on the World Wide Web. Using this method, your website can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 188.8.131.52, for example. Your domain name includes two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you will be able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain name via any sort of registrar or migrate an existing domain between registrars in a couple of simple steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar the moment the transfer process has been carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while some others demand local presence or even a business license.
