The World Wide Web uses unique numbers known as IP addresses and every single device or web site that is a part of the Web contains such an address. It really is pretty hard to remember to visit 126.96.36.199 to open a website though, that's why a significantly quicker structure was launched in the 1980s - domains. Each domain contains a main part and an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Numerous extensions exist globally - some of them are given 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 every entity and others have precise requirements - company registration, local presence, and so on. You are able to obtain a new domain name from a registrar company like ours and if the extension allows transfers, you're able to shift an existing domain between registrars too.
