A domain is an easy-to-use and distinctive website address that you'll be able to get for your site. It maps a numeric IP address that is used to distinguish web sites and / or devices on the Web but it's easier to remember or distribute. Each domain features two separate parts - the actual name that you select plus the extension. To give an example, in domain.com, “domain” is called Second-Level Domain and it's the element you'll be able to select, while “.com” is the extension, which is also known as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You're able to get your domain name through any certified registrar organization or transfer an active one between registrars if the extension allows this option. This type of a transfer doesn't change the possession of your domain; the thing that changes is the place where you will be able to take care of the domain. The vast majority of the domain name extensions are available for registration by any entity, yet various country-code extensions have particular requirements like local presence or a valid business registration.
