The World Wide Web uses unique numbers known as IP addresses and every device or web site that is part of the Web features this kind of an address. It is pretty difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, that's why a significantly quicker system was created in the eighties - domains. Every domain contains a primary part plus 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 others are generic, such as .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have specific requirements - company registration, regional presence, etc. You are able to obtain a brand new domain through a registrar firm such as ours and if the extension supports transfers, you'll be able to move an existing domain name between registrars too.
