The World Wide Web employs unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every single unit or web site that is a part of the Web has this type of an address. It really is very difficult to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to see a website though, because of this a much simpler system was introduced in the 1980s - domains. Every single domain name contains a primary part plus an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A large number of extensions exist worldwide - some of them are given to countries, for example .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for example .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have specific requirements - business registration, local presence, and so on. You can get a new domain from a registrar company such as ours and if the extension supports domain transfers, you will be able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars as well.
