The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers called IP addresses and every device or site that is part of the Web features such an address. It is pretty hard to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, that's why a significantly simpler system was created in the 1980s - domain names. Every domain name features a main part and an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A great number of extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for example .com or .net. A number of extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and others have particular requirements - company registration, regional presence, and so on. You are able to acquire a brand new domain through a registrar firm such as ours and if the extension supports domain name transfers, you'll be able to transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
