The World Wide Web employs unique numbers known as IP addresses and each unit or web site that is part of the Web features such an address. It is very hard to remember to go to 126.96.36.199 to open a website though, so a significantly easier structure was made in the eighties - domains. Each and every domain name includes a primary part as well as an extension, for example domain.com or domain.co.uk. A plethora of extensions exist globally - some of them are given to countries, like .co.uk in the abovementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while others are generic, for example .com or .net. Many extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have certain requirements - company registration, regional presence, etc. You'll be able to obtain a new domain name from a registrar organization like ours and when the extension allows domain transfers, you're able to shift an existing domain name between registrars too.
