The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and every single device or web site that is a part of the Web features such an address. It is pretty difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, so a significantly quicker system was launched in the 1980s - domain names. Each and every domain name is made of a main part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Various extensions exist worldwide - some of them are given to countries, such as .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, like .com or .net. Some extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have precise requirements - company registration, local presence, etc. You'll be able to obtain a brand new domain via a registrar organization like ours and when the extension supports transfers, you are able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars as well.
