The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every single device or site that is a part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It really is very difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, that's why a much quicker structure was created in the eighties - domains. Each domain includes a primary part plus an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A wide range of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Some extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have particular requirements - business registration, local presence, and so on. You'll be able to acquire a new domain from a registrar firm like ours and when the extension supports domain name transfers, you will be able to transfer an existing domain name between registrars too.
