The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers called IP addresses and every single unit or site that is a part of the Web has this kind of an address. It really is pretty difficult to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, because of this a much simpler structure was launched in the 1980s - domain names. Each domain consists of a primary part and an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A plethora of extensions exist globally - part of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, like .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have certain requirements - business registration, local presence, and so on. You're able to acquire a brand new domain from a registrar company such as ours and when the extension supports domain transfers, you can relocate an existing domain name between registrars too.
