The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and each device or site that is part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It would be very hard to remember to visit 188.8.131.52 to see a website though, because of this a significantly easier system was launched in the 1980s - domain names. Every domain contains a main part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A wide range of extensions exist globally - part of them are assigned to countries, 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 entity and others have certain requirements - company registration, local presence, etcetera. You are able to acquire a new domain name through a registrar firm like ours and when the extension allows domain name transfers, you are able to relocate an existing domain name between registrars too.
