A domain name is a user-friendly and distinctive web address that you can obtain for your website. It routes a numeric IP address that is applied to identify websites and / or devices on the Web but it's much easier to remember or share. Each domain name incorporates two separate parts - the actual name that you select plus its extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is known as Second-Level Domain and it's the part you'll be able to pick, and “.com” is the extension, that is referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You are able to buy your domain name through any certified registrar company or move an existing one between registrars when the extension supports this function. This kind of a transfer doesn't change the ownership of your domain name; the sole thing that changes is where you will be able to manage the domain name. Most domain name extensions are free for registration by every entity, but a large number of country-code extensions have certain conditions such as local presence or a valid business registration.
