The World Wide Web uses unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every single unit or site that is part of the Web has this type of an address. It would be pretty difficult to remember to visit 126.96.36.199 to see a website though, that's why a significantly simpler structure was introduced in the 80s - domains. Each domain name includes a main part plus an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Various extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, for example .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, for example .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have certain requirements - company registration, regional presence, and so on. You'll be able to obtain a brand new domain from a registrar firm like ours and when the extension supports domain name transfers, you are able to transfer an existing domain name between registrars too.
