A domain name is a distinctive address that you are able to acquire from a registrar company. All of the devices that are linked to the Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite hard to remember, so the domain platform was created as an easy means to recognize some website on the Internet. In this way, your web site is available at www.domain.com in place of 126.96.36.199, for instance. A domain name features two different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you'll be able to choose, plus the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You can register your new domain via any registrar or migrate a current domain between registrars in a couple of easy steps. If you choose to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar when the transfer process has been finalized. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anyone, while some others demand regional presence or a business license.
