A domain is a unique address that you can obtain from a registrar company. All devices which are connected to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty difficult to remember, so the domain system was launched as an easy means to distinguish a given web site on the Web. By result of this, your web site can be reached at www.domain.com in place of 188.8.131.52, for instance. Your domain name includes two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you'll be able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register a new domain through any kind of registrar or migrate an existing domain name between registrars in just a few easy steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process is finalized. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while others require regional presence or even a business license.
