A domain is a user-friendly and unique website address that you are able to acquire for your site. It maps a numeric IP address that is applied to find websites and units on the Internet yet it is quite easy to remember or distribute. Each and every domain consists of 2 parts - the actual name that you select as well as the extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is called Second-Level Domain and it is the part you have the option to choose, and “.com” is the extension, which is called Top-Level Domain (TLD). You're able to buy your domain name through any licensed registrar company or move an active one between registrars if the extension allows this feature. Such a transfer doesn't change the possession of your domain; the thing that changes is where you'll be able to control that domain name. Most of the domain extensions are open for registration by all entities, but a variety of country-code extensions have particular requirements such as regional presence or a current company registration.
