A domain is a user-friendly and unique website address that you are able to obtain for your website. It routes a numeric IP address that is employed to find web sites and / or devices on the World Wide Web but it is easier to remember or distribute. Every single domain name includes two parts - the actual name that you choose as well as the extension. For example, in domain.com, “domain” is referred to as Second-Level Domain and it's the element you will be able to choose, whereas “.com” is the extension, that is also identified as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You'll be able to obtain a new domain name via any accredited registrar company or transfer an existing one between registrars if the extension supports this function. Such a transfer doesn't change the ownership of a domain name; the sole thing that changes is where you are able to handle the domain name. Almost all domain name extensions are available for registration by all entities, but a variety of country-code extensions have particular prerequisites for instance regional presence or a current company registration.
