A domain name is a special address that you are able to buy from a registrar company. All of the devices that are connected to the World-Wide Web, including web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are rather difficult to remember, that's why the domain name platform was launched as an easy means to recognize a particular web site on the Internet. In this way, your web site is available at www.domain.com in place of 188.8.131.52, for example. A domain name has two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual web site name that you are able to pick, and the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register a new domain from any type of registrar or move a current domain name between registrars in a few simple steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar right after the transfer process is carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while others will need regional presence or a business license.
