A domain name is an easy-to-remember and distinctive web address that you'll be able to get for your website. It maps a numeric IP address that is used to distinguish websites and devices on the World Wide Web but it is incredibly easier to remember or distribute. Every domain name includes two parts - the specific name that you choose plus its extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is known as Second-Level Domain and it is the element you're able to choose, while “.com” is the extension, that is known as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You're able to purchase your domain name via any accredited registrar company or relocate an active one between registrars when the extension can support this option. This type of a transfer does not change the possession of a domain name; the only thing that changes is where you are able to take care of the domain name. The vast majority of the domain extensions are open for registration by all entities, but numerous country-code extensions have particular conditions for instance regional presence or an active company registration.
