A domain is an easy-to-remember and unique website address which you're able to acquire for your site. It routes a numeric IP address that is used to distinguish sites and / or devices on the Internet but it's incredibly easier to remember or share. Each domain includes two parts - the actual name that you select as well as the extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is termed Second-Level Domain and it is the part you'll be able to select, and “.com” is the extension, which is also known as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You are able to buy a brand new domain via any certified registrar organization or transfer an active one between registrars if the extension supports this function. This type of a transfer doesn't change the possession of a domain; the thing that changes is the place where you'll be able to control the domain. Most domain extensions are open for registration by every entity, however a number of country-code extensions have certain prerequisites for example local presence or a valid business registration.
