A domain is a special address that you can purchase through a registrar company. All of the devices which are linked to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very difficult to remember, for that reason the domain system was launched as an easy means to identify a web site on the Internet. Using this method, your web site is available at www.domain.com instead of 220.127.116.11, for instance. A domain name possesses 2 parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual website name that you are able to choose, plus the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You can register your new domain name from any kind of registrar or move a current domain name between registrars in just a few easy steps. Whenever you choose to do the latter, your domain shall be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar once 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 anyone, while some others require local presence or a business license.
