A domain name is a special address that you're able to buy through a registrar company. All of the devices that are connected to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very hard to remember, for this reason the domain system was launched as an easy way to recognize a particular website on the World Wide Web. As a result, your web site is available at www.domain.com in place of 188.8.131.52, for instance. Your domain name includes two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you're able to select, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain name from any type of registrar or migrate a current domain between registrars in a few simple 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 carried out. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while others will require local presence or a business license.
