The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and each unit or website that is part of the Web has this type of an address. It really is very hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, so a significantly quicker structure was created in the 80s - domains. Every domain name features a main part plus an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A large number of extensions exist globally - part of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, such as .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have certain requirements - business registration, regional presence, etc. You can obtain a new domain name via a registrar organization such as ours and if the extension allows transfers, you are able to move an existing domain name between registrars too.
