Top-Level Domain (TLD)

Generic Top-level Domains (gTLDs)

Generic top-level domains are the common domain names you're likely most familiar with. These are open for anyone to register domain names under:

  • .com (commercial)
  • .org (organization)
  • .net (network)
  • .name (name)
  • .biz (business)
  • .info (information)

Additional gTLDs are available that are called sponsored top-level domains, and are considered restricted because certain guidelines must be met before they can be registered:

  • .int (international): Used by international organizations for treaty-related purposes, and requires a United Nations registration number
  • .edu (education): Limited to educational institutions only
  • .gov (government): Limited to U.S. governmental entities only
  • .mil (military):  Limited to the U.S. military only
  • .jobs (employment): Must be registered under the legal name of a company or organization
  • .mobi (mobile): Might have to adhere to mobile-compatible guidelines
  • .tel (Telnic): Limited to hosting related to contact information, not websites

Country Code Top-level Domains (ccTLD)

Countries and territories have a top-level domain name available that's based on the country's two-letter ISO code. Here are some examples of popular country code top-level domains:

  • .us: United States
  • .ca: Canada
  • .nl: Netherlands
  • .de: Germany
  • .fr: France
  • .ch: Switzerland
  • .cn: China
  • .in: India
  • .ru: Russia
  • .mx: Mexico
  • .jp: Japan
  • .br: Brazil

The official, exhaustive list of every generic top-level domain and country code top-level domain is listed by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA).
