A domain name is a special address that you can get through a registrar company. All units which are linked to the Internet, such as web servers, feature numeric addresses, or IP addresses, which are pretty hard to remember, because of this the domain name system was created as an easy way to distinguish a given site on the Web. Using this method, your website is available at www.domain.com rather than 188.8.131.52, for instance. Your domain name includes two different parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual site name that you'll be able to select, as well as the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You're able to register a new domain from any sort of registrar or migrate an existing domain between registrars in just a few simple steps. If you decide to do the latter, your domain name will be renewed automatically by the gaining registrar once the transfer process has been carried out. Along with the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anyone, while some others need regional presence or even a business license.
