The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and each device or web site that is part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It would be pretty hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, that's why a much easier structure was made in the 80s - domain names. Each and every domain name contains a main part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A plethora of extensions exist globally - some of them are given to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have precise requirements - business registration, regional presence, and so on. You'll be able to acquire a brand new domain name via a registrar company such as ours and if the extension supports transfers, you are able to transfer an existing domain between registrars too.
