The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every unit or website that is a part of the Web features this kind of an address. It is pretty hard to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to load a website though, so a much easier structure was created in the 1980s - domain names. Every domain name features a primary part and an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Various extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, for example .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for example .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have precise requirements - business registration, regional presence, etc. You are able to get a brand new domain through a registrar organization such as ours and if the extension allows transfers, you are able to move an existing domain name between registrars as well.
