The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and every single unit or site that is a part of the Web has this type of an address. It would be pretty difficult to remember to visit 126.96.36.199 to load a website though, so a much simpler system was launched in the eighties - domains. Each and every domain name consists of a main part and an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist globally - part of them are assigned to countries, like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have precise requirements - company registration, regional presence, etc. You can acquire a brand new domain name from a registrar company like ours and if the extension supports transfers, you're able to shift an existing domain between registrars too.
