A domain is an easy-to-use and unique website address that you can get for your web site. It routes a numeric IP address that is used to identify sites as well as devices on the World Wide Web but it is much easier to remember or share. Every domain name consists of two parts - the particular name that you select plus the extension. To give an example, in domain.com, “domain” is called Second-Level Domain and it's the part you have the option to choose, while “.com” is the extension, that is also referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You're able to buy your domain name via any licensed registrar company or relocate an active one between registrars if the extension can support this feature. Such a transfer does not change the ownership of your domain name; the sole thing that changes is where you will be able to manage that domain name. The vast majority of the domain name extensions are open for registration by every entity, but a variety of country-code extensions have particular requirements such as regional presence or a current business registration.
