The World Wide Web uses unique numbers known as IP addresses and each device or web site that is a part of the Web has such an address. It would be pretty hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, because of this a much simpler system was made in the eighties - domain names. Every domain name consists of a primary part plus an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A number of extensions exist globally - some of them are given to countries, such as .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for example .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have specific requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You are able to acquire a brand new domain name from a registrar organization like ours and when the extension allows transfers, you are able to shift an existing domain between registrars as well.
