The World Wide Web is based on unique numbers called IP addresses and every unit or site that is a part of the Web has this type of an address. It really is pretty difficult to remember to visit 22.214.171.124 to load a website though, so a much quicker system was introduced in the eighties - domains. Each and every domain features a main part as well as an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A great number of extensions exist worldwide - some of them are assigned to countries, like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for example .com or .net. Some extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and others have specific requirements - business registration, local presence, etc. You can acquire a new domain from a registrar firm like ours and when the extension supports domain name transfers, you will be able to transfer an existing domain between registrars too.
