The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and every single unit or web site that is a part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It really is pretty hard to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to see a website though, that's why a much quicker system was introduced in the 80s - domain names. Each domain is made of a main part and an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A wide range of extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, such as .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have specific requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You're able to acquire a new domain name from a registrar firm such as ours and when the extension supports transfers, you can transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
