A domain name is an easy-to-remember and unique website address that you'll be able to get for your website. It designates a numeric IP address that is applied to find sites and / or devices on the Internet and it's easier to remember or share. Each and every domain name consists of two parts - the particular name that you select as well as the extension. To give an example, in domain.com, “domain” is known as Second-Level Domain and it's the part you'll be able to select, whereas “.com” is the extension, that is also referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You will be able to get your new domain name through any licensed registrar company or move an existing one between registrars if the extension allows this function. This kind of a transfer doesn't change the ownership of your domain name; the thing that changes is where you'll be able to control the domain name. Most domain name extensions are free for registration by any entity, yet a variety of country-code extensions have certain prerequisites such as local presence or a valid company registration.
