A domain name is a special address that you're able to buy from a registrar company. All devices that are linked to the Internet, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are very hard to remember, because of this the domain name system was launched as an easy way to distinguish some website on the Web. In this way, your website is available at www.domain.com in place of 18.104.22.168, for instance. Your domain name features two different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you'll be able to choose, and the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You can register a new domain name from any kind of registrar or move an active domain name between registrars in just a few easy steps. Whenever you decide to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar when the transfer process has been carried out. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones as well. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while some others need regional presence or a business license.
