A domain is an easy-to-use and distinctive web address that you are able to get for your web site. It designates a numeric IP address that is applied to identify sites as well as units on the Internet yet it is easier to remember or share. Every single domain consists of 2 parts - the actual name that you choose as well as the extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is known as Second-Level Domain and it's the part you will be able to pick, while “.com” is the extension, that is called Top-Level Domain (TLD). You will be able to register your domain through any licensed registrar company or transfer an existing one between registrars when the extension supports this feature. Such a transfer doesn't change the ownership of your domain name; the sole thing that changes is where you are able to control the domain name. Most of the domain name extensions are available for registration by every entity, however numerous country-code extensions have certain conditions such as local presence or an active company registration.
