A domain is a distinctive address that you're able to get from a registrar company. All units that are linked to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite difficult to remember, because of this the domain platform was created as an easy way to identify a certain web site on the Web. In this way, your site can be reached at www.domain.com rather than 188.8.131.52, for example. Your domain name possesses two parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you are able to select, plus the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register a new domain through any sort of registrar or migrate an active domain between registrars in just a few easy steps. If you choose to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar when the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while others demand regional presence or a business license.
