The World Wide Web uses unique numbers known as IP addresses and each unit or site that is a part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It is very hard to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to load a website though, that's why a much simpler system was made in the eighties - domain names. Each domain name features a primary part and an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A number of extensions exist worldwide - some of them are given to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for instance .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have particular requirements - company registration, local presence, etcetera. You'll be able to acquire a brand new domain name from a registrar organization like ours and when the extension allows domain transfers, you are able to shift an existing domain name between registrars too.
