The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and every single unit or web site that is part of the Web features such an address. It would be pretty difficult to remember to visit 22.214.171.124 to load a website though, that's why a significantly simpler structure was launched in the 1980s - domains. Each and every domain contains a primary part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist globally - some of them are given to countries, like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have precise requirements - company registration, local presence, etcetera. You're able to obtain a new domain name through a registrar organization such as ours and if the extension supports domain transfers, you will be able to transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
