A domain name is a user-friendly and unique website address which you'll be able to get for your site. It maps a numeric IP address that is used to distinguish websites and / or devices on the Internet yet it is rather easy to remember or share. Each and every domain name features two separate parts - the name that you select plus the extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is called Second-Level Domain and it's the part you are able to select, whereas “.com” is the extension, which is also known as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You will be able to get your new domain via any accredited registrar organization or move an active one between registrars if the extension can support this option. This kind of a transfer doesn't change the possession of a domain name; the one thing that changes is where you will be able to handle the domain. The majority of the domain extensions are available for registration by all entities, but various country-code extensions have specific prerequisites such as local presence or a valid company registration.
