A domain name is an easy-to-use and unique web address which you're able to acquire for your web site. It maps a numeric IP address that is applied to identify websites and devices on the Web yet it's easier to remember or share. Each domain name contains two parts - the name that you select plus the extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is known as Second-Level Domain and it is the part you are able to pick, and “.com” is the extension, that is called Top-Level Domain (TLD). You'll be able to obtain your domain via any accredited registrar organization or move an active one between registrars when the extension can support this option. Such a transfer does not change the ownership of your domain; the thing that changes is the place where you're able to control that domain name. The majority of the domain extensions are free for registration by all entities, but a number of country-code extensions have certain prerequisites such as regional presence or a current company registration.
