A domain is a unique address that you are able to purchase via a registrar company. All units which are linked to the Internet, including web servers, possess numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty hard to remember, because of this the domain name platform was created as an easy means to identify a certain website on the World Wide Web. Thus, your website is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 220.127.116.11, for instance. Your domain name has 2 separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you can choose, as well as the Top-Level Domain, which is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register your new domain through any sort of registrar or migrate an active domain name between registrars in a couple of easy steps. If you choose to do the latter, your domain will be renewed immediately by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been completed. Along with the generic Top-Level Domains, there are country-code ones as well. Some of them can be registered by anyone, while others will require regional presence or even a business license.
