The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and each device or website that is part of the Web contains such an address. It really is pretty hard to remember to visit 22.214.171.124 to open a website though, that's why a much simpler system was made in the eighties - domain names. Each and every domain is made of a main part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Various extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, for example .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and others have specific requirements - business registration, local presence, etc. You will be able to obtain a brand new domain name through a registrar firm such as ours and when the extension allows transfers, you're able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars as well.
