The World Wide Web uses unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every single unit or web site that is part of the Web has this kind of an address. It is very difficult to remember to go to 22.214.171.124 to open a website though, so a significantly simpler system was made in the eighties - domain names. Each and every domain is made of a primary 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, like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for example .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have precise requirements - business registration, local presence, and so on. You're able to get a brand new domain name through a registrar firm such as ours and if the extension supports domain name transfers, you can transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
