The World Wide Web uses unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every unit or web site that is part of the Web has this kind of an address. It would be pretty difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, so a much quicker structure was introduced in the eighties - domain names. Every single domain includes a main part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A number of extensions exist globally - part of them are assigned to countries, for example .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, like .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have certain requirements - company registration, regional presence, and so on. You'll be able to obtain a new domain name via a registrar company such as ours and if the extension supports domain transfers, you're able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars as well.
