The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and every device or site that is a part of the Web contains such an address. It would be very difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to load a website though, because of this a significantly quicker structure was created in the eighties - domains. Every domain name contains a primary part and an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Many different extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, like .co.uk in the abovementioned 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 particular requirements - company registration, local presence, etcetera. You're able to acquire a new domain through a registrar firm such as ours and if the extension allows domain transfers, you can move an existing domain between registrars as well.
