A domain name is a special address that you're able to get from a registrar company. All of the devices which are linked to the Internet, including web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are quite hard to remember, for that reason the domain name system was created as an easy way to identify a particular web site on the Internet. As a result, your website is available at www.domain.com rather than 188.8.131.52, for instance. A domain name includes 2 parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you'll be able to choose, plus the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register your new domain through any type of registrar or move an existing domain between registrars in a few simple steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process is carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while others will need local presence or a business license.
