A domain name is an easy-to-remember and distinctive website address that you'll be able to obtain for your web site. It routes a numeric IP address that is applied to find web sites and / or devices on the World Wide Web and it is much easier to remember or distribute. Every domain name contains two parts - the actual name that you select plus the extension. For instance, in domain.com, “domain” is termed Second-Level Domain and it is the part you are able to select, whereas “.com” is the extension, that is referred to as Top-Level Domain (TLD). You can register a new domain through any certified registrar organization or relocate an active one between registrars if the extension can support this feature. Such a transfer does not change the ownership of your domain name; the one thing that changes is where you are able to handle that domain name. Most of the domain extensions are free for registration by any entity, however a number of country-code extensions have certain requirements for example regional presence or an active business registration.
