A domain name is a special address that you can obtain via a registrar company. All units which are connected to the Web, such as web servers, have numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty difficult to remember, so the domain platform was launched as an easy means to distinguish a certain site on the Web. Using this method, your website can be reached at www.domain.com rather than 188.8.131.52, for example. A domain name possesses two different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you will be able to select, and the Top-Level Domain, that is the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You will be able to register your new domain name from any kind of registrar or move a current domain name between registrars in just a few simple steps. When you decide to do the latter, your domain will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar when the transfer process has been carried out. In addition to the generic Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. A number of them can be registered by anybody, while some others will need local presence or even a business license.
