The World Wide Web uses unique numbers known as IP addresses and every device or site that is a part of the Web has this type of an address. It really is pretty hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, so a significantly easier structure was made in the 80s - domains. Every single domain features a main part as well as an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, such as .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have specific requirements - business registration, regional presence, and so on. You are able to obtain a new domain name through a registrar organization such as ours and when the extension allows domain name transfers, you're able to transfer an existing domain between registrars too.
