The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and every single device or site that is part of the Web has this type of an address. It would be pretty difficult to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, that's why a much quicker structure was launched in the 80s - domain names. Every single domain contains a primary part as well as an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, such as .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and others have specific requirements - business registration, regional presence, and so on. You are able to get a brand new domain name via a registrar company such as ours and when the extension allows domain name transfers, you'll be able to shift an existing domain name between registrars too.
