The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and each device or web site that is a part of the Web has this type of an address. It really is pretty hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, that's why a much simpler system was launched in the eighties - domains. Every domain features a main part plus an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A great number of extensions exist worldwide - some of them are given to countries, just like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, like .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have particular requirements - company registration, regional presence, etcetera. You're able to obtain a brand new domain through a registrar company like ours and if the extension allows domain transfers, you're able to relocate an existing domain between registrars too.
