The World Wide Web employs unique numbers identified as IP addresses and each device or website that is a part of the Web features this kind of an address. It is pretty difficult to remember to go to 220.127.116.11 to open a website though, that's why a significantly quicker structure was created in the 80s - domains. Every domain consists of a main part plus an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Plenty of extensions exist globally - part of them are assigned to countries, 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 every entity and some others have particular requirements - business registration, regional presence, etcetera. You can get a brand new domain via a registrar firm like ours and when the extension allows transfers, you'll be able to move an existing domain name between registrars as well.
