A domain name is an easy-to-use and unique website address which you'll be able to obtain for your site. It designates a numeric IP address that is used to distinguish sites as well as units on the Internet and it's rather easy to remember or distribute. Each domain name features two parts - the particular name that you choose plus the extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is called Second-Level Domain and it's the element you will be able to select, whereas “.com” is the extension, that is referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You will be able to acquire a brand new domain through any licensed registrar organization or move an active one between registrars in case the extension allows this function. Such a transfer does not change the ownership of a domain; the one thing that changes is where you're able to handle that domain. The vast majority of the domain extensions are free for registration by every entity, yet various country-code extensions have certain requirements such as regional presence or an active business registration.
