The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and each unit or site that is a part of the Web features such an address. It really is very hard to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to open a website though, that's why a significantly simpler structure was created in the 80s - domains. Every domain contains a main part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A plethora of extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, such as .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and others have precise requirements - business registration, regional presence, etc. You are able to get a new domain name from a registrar firm like ours and when the extension allows transfers, you're able to move an existing domain between registrars too.
