A domain name is a unique address that you're able to obtain through a registrar company. All units that are connected to the Web, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, because of this the domain name platform was introduced as an easy means to identify some website on the World Wide Web. As a result, your site can be reached at www.domain.com instead of 188.8.131.52, for example. A domain name includes two parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you'll be able to choose, and the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain from any registrar or transfer a current domain name between registrars in just a few easy steps. In the event that you decide to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones as well. A number of them can be registered by anyone, while some others need regional presence or a business license.
