A domain is an easy-to-remember and unique web address that you will be able to obtain for your site. It routes a numeric IP address that is applied to identify web sites as well as units on the Web but it's rather easy to remember or distribute. Every domain name contains two parts - the name that you select as well as its extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is referred to as Second-Level Domain and it's the element you have the option to choose, and “.com” is the extension, which is also referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You are able to purchase a brand new domain name via any certified registrar organization or relocate an active one between registrars in case the extension supports this feature. This type of a transfer doesn't change the possession of your domain name; the one thing that changes is the place where you'll be able to take care of the domain name. Most of the domain extensions are open for registration by any entity, however various country-code extensions have certain requirements such as local presence or an active company registration.
