The World Wide Web employs unique numbers identified as IP addresses and each unit or web site that is part of the Web features such an address. It would be very hard to remember to go to 22.214.171.124 to load a website though, that's why a significantly quicker system was launched in the 1980s - domains. Each domain includes a primary part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A plethora of extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, such as .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, such as .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and some others have certain requirements - company registration, regional presence, etcetera. You'll be able to get a brand new domain name from a registrar organization such as ours and when the extension allows transfers, you can shift an existing domain name between registrars too.
