The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and every unit or website that is a part of the Web has such an address. It really is very hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, because of this a significantly easier system was introduced in the 80s - domain names. Every domain is made of a main part and an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, for instance .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have certain requirements - company registration, regional presence, etcetera. You can acquire a new domain through a registrar firm like ours and when the extension allows transfers, you can transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
