A domain is a unique address that you're able to get through a registrar company. All devices that are linked to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very difficult to remember, for that reason the domain platform was created as an easy means to recognize a certain website on the Internet. In this way, your web site can be reached at www.domain.com instead of 188.8.131.52, for example. A domain name possesses two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual web site name that you can select, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register your new domain from any sort of registrar or move an existing domain between registrars in just a few easy steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been finalized. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anyone, while others need regional presence or a business license.
