Thus, your site is available at www.domain.com as an alternative to 220.127.116.11, for example. Your domain name possesses two parts - the Second-Level Domain, which is the actual site name that you're able to choose, plus the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register your new domain name via any kind of registrar or move an existing domain name between registrars in a few easy steps.
