A Top-level (TLD) is the part of a website named to the dot's proper. For instance, the "com" in example.com). TLDs are a part of the text-based interface assigned to numerical IP addresses. That permits humans to navigate online without memorising long strings of numbers more easily.
There are currently two sorts of TLDs. Generic (gTLDs) and country code (ccTLDs). GTLDs are the most important domain and account for many newly available domains. Whereas ccTLDs are generally assigned to specific geographic locations (e.g .UK, .DE, and .CA)
Internationalized (IDNs) enable people worldwide to use TLD names in local languages and scripts. These TLD characters are encoded to the Unicode standard and used by relevant IDN protocols.
ICANN requires anyone registering a website to make a public record of TLD ownership within the Whois Directory. WhoisGuard replaces the official TLD registry's personal information, legally masking public view data.
You can only 'renew' TLDs that are still active. However, you will 'reactivate' an expired TLD for precisely the same price as a renewal.
The remaining time with the old registrar is saved when you transfer your TLD. The exception to all or any is UK group TLDs renewed during transfer. That is why sharing them is free.
