The World Wide Web uses unique numbers known as IP addresses and every single device or website that is part of the Web has such an address. It really is very hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, because of this a much simpler structure was introduced in the 80s - domain names. Each and every domain name contains a primary part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist globally - part of them are given to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for example .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have precise requirements - business registration, local presence, and so on. You will be able to obtain a brand new domain from a registrar company such as ours and if the extension allows transfers, you'll be able to shift an existing domain name between registrars as well.
