A domain name is a distinctive address that you can buy from a registrar company. All of the units that are connected to the Internet, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather difficult to remember, so the domain name platform was introduced as an easy way to identify a web site on the Internet. In this way, your website is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 220.127.116.11, for example. Your domain name features two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you will be able to choose, plus the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You'll be able to register your new domain through any type of registrar or migrate a current domain between registrars in just a few simple steps. Whenever you decide to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process is finalized. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anybody, while others require regional presence or a business license.
