The World Wide Web uses unique numbers known as IP addresses and every unit or web site that is part of the Web has this type of an address. It is very hard to remember to go to 220.127.116.11 to load a website though, that's why a significantly quicker system was created in the 80s - domains. Every single domain name is made of a primary part plus an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A wide range of extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, like .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have particular requirements - business registration, local presence, etcetera. You're able to obtain a new domain name from a registrar firm such as ours and if the extension allows domain transfers, you are able to shift an existing domain name between registrars as well.
