The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and each device or site that is a part of the Web features this kind of an address. It is pretty difficult to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to open a website though, that's why a much easier structure was introduced in the eighties - domains. Each and every domain name consists of a primary part and an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A number of extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, like .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have particular requirements - business registration, local presence, etc. You're able to acquire a new domain name through a registrar company like ours and if the extension allows domain name transfers, you are able to transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
