The World Wide Web employs unique numbers called IP addresses and each unit or web site that is part of the Web contains this type of an address. It is very hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, that's why a much quicker structure was made in the 1980s - domains. Every domain name features a main part and an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A great number of extensions exist globally - some of them are given to countries, like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, such as .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have specific requirements - business registration, regional presence, etcetera. You're able to acquire a new domain name through a registrar organization like ours and when the extension supports domain transfers, you are able to transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
