The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and every device or website that is part of the Web features this kind of an address. It really is pretty hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, because of this a much easier structure was introduced in the 80s - domains
. Every domain name consists of a primary part plus an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A large number of extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have precise requirements - company registration, local presence, etc. You'll be able to obtain a brand new domain name from a registrar organization like ours and when the extension supports transfers, you'll be able to shift an existing domain between registrars as well.
