The World Wide Web uses unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every single device or web site that is part of the Web contains such an address. It really is very difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, that's why a significantly easier structure was made in the 80s - domains. Each and every domain includes a main part plus an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A great number of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, such as .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and others have certain requirements - company registration, local presence, etcetera. You are able to acquire a brand new domain via a registrar company like ours and if the extension allows domain name transfers, you'll be able to move an existing domain name between registrars as well.
