A domain is a special address that you're able to buy via a registrar company. All of the units which are connected to the Web, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, for this reason the domain name system was launched as an easy means to identify a site on the World Wide Web. By result of this, your web site is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 126.96.36.199, for example. Your domain name includes two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you are 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 your new domain name from any type of registrar or migrate a current domain name between registrars in a couple of simple steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been completed. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while others need local presence or even a business license.
