The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and every single unit or site that is part of the Web features such an address. It would be pretty difficult to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to load a website though, so a significantly easier system was launched in the 1980s - domains. Every single domain contains a main part and an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A large number of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while various others are generic, such as .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have particular requirements - business registration, local presence, and so on. You will be able to obtain a new domain from a registrar organization like ours and when the extension supports domain name transfers, you'll be able to transfer an existing domain between registrars too.
