A domain name is a unique address that you're able to purchase via a registrar company. All of the units that are linked to the Internet, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty difficult to remember, so the domain name platform was launched as an easy way to distinguish some site on the Web. As a result, your website is available at www.domain.com rather than 126.96.36.199, for example. A domain name possesses 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you are able to pick, 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 through any sort of registrar or move an existing domain between registrars in a few easy steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar the moment the transfer process is carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will require local presence or a business license.
