A domain name is a special address that you are able to purchase through a registrar company. All devices that are linked to the Internet, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very hard to remember, for that reason the domain name platform was launched as an easy way to identify a particular site on the Web. Using this method, your website is available at www.domain.com in place of 188.8.131.52, for example. A domain name features 2 parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you will be able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register your new domain through any registrar or transfer a current domain between registrars in a couple of easy steps. If you choose to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar when the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while others demand regional presence or a business license.
