The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers identified as IP addresses and each device or site that is a part of the Web features this type of an address. It really is pretty hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, that's why a much quicker system was created in the 1980s - domain names. Each domain features a primary part and an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A great number of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, for instance .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have particular requirements - company registration, regional presence, etcetera. You will be able to acquire a brand new domain from a registrar organization like ours and if the extension allows domain name transfers, you'll be able to move an existing domain between registrars too.
