The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers identified as IP addresses and each unit or web site that is part of the Web features this kind of an address. It is very difficult to remember to go to 22.214.171.124 to load a website though, because of this a much simpler structure was created in the eighties - domain names. Every domain is made of a main part plus an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A great number of extensions exist worldwide - part of them are given to countries, such as .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Some extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have particular requirements - business registration, local presence, and so on. You are able to get a new domain name from a registrar firm such as ours and if the extension allows domain transfers, you will be able to relocate an existing domain between registrars as well.
