The World Wide Web employs unique numbers called IP addresses and every unit or site that is part of the Web features this kind of an address. It would be very difficult to remember to go to 22.214.171.124 to load a website though, that's why a much easier system was created in the 1980s - domains. Each domain name includes a main part and an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Many different extensions exist globally - part of them are given to countries, for example .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for instance .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have specific requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You are able to obtain a new domain name through a registrar firm such as ours and when the extension allows domain transfers, you will be able to move an existing domain name between registrars too.
