A domain is a unique address that you are able to get from a registrar company. All of the units that are connected to the Internet, such as web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty difficult to remember, that's why the domain platform was launched as an easy way to distinguish a given web site on the Web. Using this method, your site is available at www.domain.com instead of 126.96.36.199, for instance. A domain name includes two parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you will be able to pick, and the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You can register a new domain from any registrar or transfer a current domain between registrars in just a few easy steps. In the event that you choose to do the latter, your domain will be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar as soon as the transfer process is carried out. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while some others demand regional presence or even a business license.
