The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and each unit or web site that is a part of the Web has this type of an address. It is pretty difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, that's why a significantly simpler structure was launched in the 80s - domain names. Each domain name features a primary part and an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A large number of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for example .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have precise requirements - business registration, regional presence, and so on. You're able to acquire a brand new domain via a registrar organization such as ours and if the extension supports transfers, you can relocate an existing domain between registrars as well.
