The World Wide Web employs unique numbers identified as IP addresses and every unit or web site that is part of the Web has this type of an address. It would be pretty hard to remember to visit 126.96.36.199 to see a website though, that's why a much easier system was introduced in the 1980s - domain names. Every domain is made of a primary part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, like .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and others have specific requirements - company registration, regional presence, and so on. You'll be able to obtain a brand new domain name through a registrar firm like ours and when the extension supports domain transfers, you will be able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars too.
