A domain is a special address that you are able to get through a registrar company. All the units which are connected to the World-Wide Web, such as web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, for this reason the domain name platform was created as an easy means to identify a given website on the Web. In this way, your site can be reached at www.domain.com instead of 188.8.131.52, for instance. A domain name possesses two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you are able to choose, and the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You can register your new domain name from any type of registrar or migrate a current domain between registrars in a few simple steps. In the event that you choose to do the latter, your domain will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process has been completed. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. Many of them can be registered by anyone, while some others will require regional presence or even a business license.
