What is a Top Level Domain (TLD)?

A top level domain (TLD) is the suffix that is attached to the end of a domain name. For instance, in the domain name, ".com" is the TLD.

There are two types of top-level domains: global and country code. Global Top Level Domains (gTLD) were created to be used by the Internet public, while country code Top Level Domains (ccTLD) were created to be used by each individual country, as they deem necessary.

The global Top Level Domains are as follows:

ICANN accredited registrars offers the .com, .net and .org global Top Level Domains in addition to various ccTLDs for registration.

Country Code Top Level Domains are numerous (about 243), and include:
.ag (Antigua & Barbuda
.us (United States)
.uk (United Kingdom)
.de (Germany)
.ch (Switzerland)
.at (Austria)
.bz (Belize)
