The World Wide Web uses unique numbers called IP addresses and every single device or website that is part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It is very hard to remember to visit 220.127.116.11 to see a website though, that's why a significantly quicker system was introduced in the 80s - domain names. Each and every domain name consists of a primary part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. A large number of extensions exist worldwide - part of them are given to countries, for example .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for example .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by any entity and some others have particular requirements - business registration, regional presence, etcetera. You can acquire a brand new domain name from a registrar organization like ours and when the extension allows domain name transfers, you'll be able to shift an existing domain name between registrars too.
