The World Wide Web uses unique numbers known as IP addresses and every device or web site that is part of the Web contains 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 much quicker structure was made in the eighties - domain names. Every single domain name contains a primary part and an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Many different extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, for example .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have precise requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You can obtain a new domain via a registrar organization such as ours and if the extension allows domain transfers, you are able to transfer an existing domain name between registrars too.
