A domain name includes two separate parts - the Second-Level Domain, that is the actual website name that you are able to choose, and the Top-Level Domain, that's the extension - .com, .net, .org and so on. You are able to register a new domain name via any type of registrar or move a current domain between registrars in a couple of simple steps. Whenever you decide to do the latter, your domain name shall be renewed instantly by the gaining registrar the moment the transfer process has been completed. In addition to the universal Top-Level Domains, there're country-code ones too. Many of them can be registered by anyone, while some others require regional presence or a business license.
