The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and each device or website that is part of the Web features this type of an address. It would be pretty hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, because of this a significantly quicker structure was created in the 1980s - domain names. Every domain consists of a primary part and an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Many different extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have certain requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You're able to get a brand new domain through a registrar organization like ours and if the extension allows domain name transfers, you will be able to transfer an existing domain between registrars as well.
