The World Wide Web employs unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every single unit or site that is part of the Web features this type of an address. It would be very hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, because of this a significantly quicker system was launched in the 80s - domains. Every single domain name is made of a primary part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A plethora of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, like .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have particular requirements - company registration, regional presence, and so on. You can obtain a new domain name from a registrar company such as ours and when the extension supports transfers, you'll be able to transfer an existing domain name between registrars too.
