A domain is an easy-to-remember and unique website address that you will be able to obtain for your web site. It designates a numeric IP address that is used to distinguish sites and units on the Internet and it is rather easy to remember or share. Every single domain name features two separate parts - the particular name that you select as well as the extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is called Second-Level Domain and it's the part you are able to choose, and “.com” is the extension, that is referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You are able to buy your domain via any accredited registrar organization or transfer an active one between registrars if the extension allows this feature. This type of a transfer doesn't change the ownership of a domain; the one thing that changes is where you are able to control the domain. Most domain extensions are open for registration by all entities, yet various country-code extensions have certain prerequisites for example local presence or a valid business registration.
