The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and each unit or website that is part of the Web contains this type of an address. It really is very difficult to remember to visit 22.214.171.124 to see a website though, so a significantly simpler system was made in the 1980s - domains. Each and every domain features a primary part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A plethora of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned 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. Many extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have specific requirements - company registration, local presence, etcetera. You're able to get a brand new domain from a registrar company such as ours and if the extension supports transfers, you can transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
