The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers identified as IP addresses and every unit or website that is a part of the Web features such an address. It would be very difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, so a much simpler structure was launched in the 80s - domains. Every domain name includes a primary part and an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist globally - part of them are given to countries, for example .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, like .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have specific requirements - company registration, local presence, etcetera. You can acquire a brand new domain through a registrar firm like ours and when the extension supports transfers, you're able to shift an existing domain between registrars as well.
