A domain name is a special address that you are able to get through a registrar company. All the devices which are connected to the Internet, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very difficult to remember, so the domain system was introduced as an easy way to identify a given website on the Web. In this way, your website is available at www.domain.com instead of 126.96.36.199, for instance. Your domain name has 2 parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you are able to pick, plus the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register your new domain name through any type of registrar or move a current domain between registrars in just a few easy steps. If you choose to do the latter, your domain will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar the moment the transfer process has been finalized. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while some others need local presence or a business license.
