The World Wide Web employs unique numbers identified as IP addresses and every single unit or web site that is a part of the Web features such an address. It is pretty difficult to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to load a website though, because of this a significantly easier system was introduced in the 1980s - domains. Each domain is made of a primary part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A large number of 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 many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have certain requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You're able to obtain a brand new domain name from a registrar firm such as ours and if the extension supports transfers, you will be able to transfer an existing domain between registrars too.
