A domain is a unique address that you are able to acquire through a registrar company. All units which are connected to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather hard to remember, because of this the domain system was introduced as an easy means to recognize a particular website on the Web. As a result, your site can be reached at www.domain.com as an alternative to 126.96.36.199, for example. A domain name has two parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual web site name that you will be able to choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You can register your new domain name from any registrar or migrate an active domain name between registrars in a few simple steps. In the event that you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar when the transfer process is completed. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while some others demand regional presence or even a business license.
