The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and every single unit or web site that is a part of the Web contains this type of an address. It is very difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, so a significantly easier system was created in the eighties - domain names. Every single domain name consists of a primary part plus an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Various extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, like .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have precise requirements - business registration, regional presence, etcetera. You are able to acquire a new domain name from a registrar organization such as ours and when the extension supports domain name transfers, you're able to move an existing domain name between registrars as well.
