A domain name is a unique address that you are able to buy through a registrar company. All the devices that are linked to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very hard to remember, so the domain platform was created as an easy way to recognize a particular web site on the Web. As a result, your website is available at www.domain.com rather than 184.108.40.206, for instance. A domain name includes two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual web site name that you can pick, plus the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You'll be able to register a new domain name from any sort of registrar or migrate an existing domain between registrars in a couple of simple steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process has been completed. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Some of them can be registered by anybody, while others will need regional presence or even a business license.
