The World Wide Web employs unique numbers identified as IP addresses and every device or website that is part of the Web contains such an address. It would be very difficult to remember to go to 188.8.131.52 to open a website though, that's why a significantly simpler system was introduced in the eighties - domain names. Each domain features a primary part as well as an extension, for instance domain.com or domain.co.uk. Many different extensions exist globally - some of them are given to countries, just like .co.uk in the aforementioned example, which is given to the United Kingdom, while many others are generic, like .com or .net. Various extensions are available for registration by every entity and others have certain requirements - business registration, local presence, etc. You will be able to obtain a brand new domain through a registrar firm like ours and when the extension allows domain name transfers, you can transfer an existing domain name between registrars as well.
