The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and every device or web site that is a part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It is very difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, that's why a significantly simpler structure was created in the 1980s - domains. Every domain name contains a primary part plus an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Many different extensions exist worldwide - part of them are given to countries, for example .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, such as .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and others have precise requirements - business registration, local presence, etcetera. You're able to obtain a brand new domain from a registrar company such as ours and if the extension supports domain name transfers, you'll be able to relocate an existing domain between registrars as well.
