A domain is a user-friendly and distinctive web address which you can get for your site. It designates a numeric IP address that is employed to distinguish sites and devices on the Web and it is easier to remember or distribute. Every domain consists of two different parts - the actual name that you select and its extension. For 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, that is referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You're able to acquire your domain through any certified registrar organization or move an active one between registrars when the extension can support this option. This type of a transfer does not change the possession of a domain name; the sole thing that changes is the place where you'll be able to control that domain name. The majority of the domain name extensions are free for registration by any entity, but various country-code extensions have certain prerequisites like regional presence or an active business registration.
