A domain is an easy-to-use and unique website address that you can acquire for your web site. It routes a numeric IP address that is used to distinguish websites as well as devices on the World Wide Web and it is much easier to remember or distribute. Every domain name features two different parts - the name that you choose as well as its extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is referred to as Second-Level Domain and it is the part you're able to select, and “.com” is the extension, that is referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You are able to register a brand new domain through any licensed registrar company or transfer an active one between registrars if the extension supports this feature. Such a transfer doesn't change the possession of your domain name; the only thing that changes is the place where you'll be able to handle that domain. Most of the domain name extensions are available for registration by every entity, but numerous country-code extensions have certain requirements for example regional presence or a valid business registration.
