A domain is an easy-to-remember and distinctive web address which you can acquire for your web site. It designates a numeric IP address that is applied to find websites and / or devices on the Internet and it is much easier to remember or distribute. Every single domain incorporates two separate parts - the name that you choose and its extension. To give an example, in domain.com, “domain” is known as Second-Level Domain and it's the element you're able to select, whereas “.com” is the extension, which is also referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You can register your new domain name via any licensed registrar organization or relocate an active one between registrars if the extension supports this feature. This type of a transfer doesn't change the ownership of your domain; the one thing that changes is the place where you're able to manage the domain name. Most of the domain extensions are open for registration by all entities, but various country-code extensions have particular requirements like regional presence or a current business registration.
