A domain name is a user-friendly and distinctive web address that you'll be able to obtain for your website. It maps a numeric IP address that is applied to identify websites and units on the Internet but it is rather easy to remember or distribute. Every single domain contains two different parts - the specific name that you choose and its extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is called Second-Level Domain and it is the element you will be able to choose, and “.com” is the extension, which is referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You will be able to purchase a brand new domain name through any certified registrar organization or relocate an existing one between registrars when the extension allows this feature. This type of a transfer doesn't change the possession of your domain name; the sole thing that changes is where you'll be able to manage that domain. Most domain extensions are free for registration by every entity, however a number of country-code extensions have certain prerequisites such as local presence or an active business registration.
