A domain name is a unique address that you are able to obtain via a registrar company. All the units that are connected to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, for that reason the domain platform was created as an easy way to distinguish some website on the Web. Thus, your web site is available at www.domain.com rather than 123.123.123.123, for instance. A domain name includes 2 different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you're able to select, and the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain through any kind of registrar or migrate an active domain name between registrars in a few simple steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been finalized. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while others need local presence or a business license.
