The World Wide Web employs unique numbers identified as IP addresses and every device or website that is part of the Web contains this type of an address. It really is very difficult to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, so a much simpler structure was created in the eighties - domains. Every single domain consists of a primary part plus an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Various extensions exist worldwide - part of them are given to countries, like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for example .com or .net. Some extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have certain requirements - company registration, local presence, etc. You'll be able to get a new domain through a registrar firm such as ours and if the extension allows transfers, you can transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
