The World Wide Web employs unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every single device or website that is a part of the Web contains such an address. It really is very hard to remember to visit 18.104.22.168 to load a website though, because of this a significantly simpler system was launched in the 80s - domains. Each domain contains a primary part and an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A plethora of extensions exist globally - some of them are given to countries, such as .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, like .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have particular requirements - business registration, regional presence, etcetera. You're able to acquire a brand new domain name from a registrar company like ours and when the extension supports transfers, you're able to transfer an existing domain between registrars too.
