Internet Domain Extensions

It has been a long time since the TLDs (Top Level Domains) could be counted on one hand, and companies could register their ".com" without concern for other extensions. In the 1980s, out of the seven existing TLDs (.com, .net, .org, .edu, .gov, .mil, .int) there were only three (.com, .net, .org) that could be registered without restriction. When you account for the 240+ ccTLDs (Country Code TLDs) in existence today, and the 7 new generic US TLDs that have been added to the list, it can get really confusing. In today's world, it is hard to know exactly what part of the world you're visiting on the internet... The different country codes below and give a general idea of the country, although they are not necessarily correct. A number of countries export their country-code domain extensions, such as Tuvalu's ".tv" widely being used in the US. Still, the below tables should give you a general idea of the intended use of both "generic" and "country code" TLDs.

* Top Level Domains (TLDs) with two letters are referred to as ccTLDs ("country-code" TLDs).  Most TLDs with three or more characters are referred to as gTLDs ("generic" TLDs).
* There is one special TLD, ".arpa" used and administered by ICANN, under the IAB guidance for technical infrastructure purposes.
