The World Wide Web uses unique numbers identified as IP addresses and each unit or site that is part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It is very hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, that's why a significantly simpler structure was created in the 1980s - domain names. Each and every domain name consists of a main part and an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A wide range of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, for example .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have precise requirements - business registration, regional presence, etcetera. You are able to acquire a new domain name via a registrar company like ours and if the extension allows domain name transfers, you're able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars as well.
