The World Wide Web uses unique numbers identified as IP addresses and every single device or site that is part of the Web has this kind of an address. It is very hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, so a significantly easier system was created in the 80s - domains. Each and every domain name is made of a primary part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Plenty of extensions exist globally - part of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have particular requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You are able to obtain a brand new domain from a registrar organization like ours and if the extension allows domain name transfers, you are able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars too.
