The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and each unit or website that is a part of the Web has this type of an address. It would be very difficult to remember to visit 126.96.36.199 to load a website though, that's why a significantly quicker structure was introduced in the 80s - domain names. Each and every domain name is made of a main part plus an extension, to give an example 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, for instance .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by any entity and others have precise requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You'll be able to obtain a new domain name from a registrar organization such as ours and if the extension allows domain transfers, you will be able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars as well.
