The World Wide Web employs unique numbers called IP addresses and every unit or web site that is a part of the Web has such an address. It really is very hard to remember to go to 22.214.171.124 to open a website though, so a much easier structure was created in the 80s - domains. Every single domain features a primary part plus an extension, to give an example domain.com or domain.co.uk. Plenty of extensions exist worldwide - part of them are assigned to countries, like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is assigned to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, for example .com or .net. Some extensions are available for registration by any kind of entity and some others have certain requirements - business registration, regional presence, etcetera. You'll be able to acquire a brand new domain name through a registrar company such as ours and when the extension supports transfers, you can relocate an existing domain name between registrars as well.
