The World Wide Web employs unique numbers referred to as IP addresses and each device or web site that is a part of the Web contains this kind of an address. It is very hard to remember to visit to open a website though, that's why a much quicker system was created in the 80s - domain names. Every single domain name includes a primary part plus an extension, for example or A plethora of extensions exist globally - some of them are assigned to countries, for example in the abovementioned example, which is given 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 specific requirements - company registration, regional presence, etc. You can acquire a brand new domain through a registrar company such as ours and when the extension allows domain name transfers, you will be able to move an existing domain name between registrars too.
