The World Wide Web employs unique numbers identified as IP addresses and every unit or website that is part of the Web has this kind of an address. It really is very hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, because of this a much easier structure was made in the 80s - domain names. Each and every domain consists of a main part plus an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A number of extensions exist globally - part of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have precise requirements - company registration, regional presence, and so on. You can acquire a brand new domain via a registrar firm such as ours and when the extension supports domain name transfers, you can transfer an existing domain name between registrars too.
