The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers identified as IP addresses and every device or site that is a part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It would be pretty hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, because of this a significantly easier structure was launched in the 80s - domains. Every single domain contains a main part and an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A large number of extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, for example .com or .net. Some extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have precise requirements - company registration, regional presence, and so on. You are able to get a brand new domain from a registrar company such as ours and when the extension allows domain transfers, you'll be able to shift an existing domain between registrars as well.
