The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers known as IP addresses and every single device or site that is part of the Web contains this type of an address. It is very difficult to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, because of this a much quicker system was created in the 80s - domains. Every domain features a main part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist globally - part of them are given to countries, like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for example .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have precise requirements - business registration, regional presence, etcetera. You're able to acquire a brand new domain name through a registrar organization such as ours and if the extension allows transfers, you will be able to move an existing domain between registrars too.
