A domain name, or URL, is your website's address. You can customize your domain name to your store. Domain names can end in .com, .org, .gov, and even more creative things like .co or .io. It's important to choose a domain name that's easy to remember and spell so customers can find you.
TLD is the abbreviation for top-level domain, which is the last section of your domain name. Many websites use .com as their TLD.

By redirecting the old domain to the new, live domain, you can signal to Google that the new domain is the home of the old domain's content.
