The suffix of a domain name is the top-level domain. A top-level domain is generic (.com, edu, .museum, .name, etc) or a country code (.uk, .de, .jp, .us, etc.). The top-level domain can be used to identify the type of web site. The following is a partial list of how this report categorizes top-level domains: ARPANET: .arpa Commercial: .com .co .com.[country code] .co.[country code] .firm.co .firm.ve .ltd.uk Education: .edu .edu.[country code] .ed.[country code] .ac.[country code] .school.[country code] .k12.[country code] .re.kr .sch.uk .edunet.tn International: .int .int.co .int.ve .intl.tn Government: .gov .gov.[country code] .gove.[country code] .go.[country code] Military: .mil .mil.[country code] Network: .net .ad.jp .ne.kr .net.[country code] Organization: .org .or .org.[country code] .or.[country code
Name at the top of the DNS naming hierarchy. TLDs appear in domain names as the string of letters following the last (rightmost) period, such as "org" in "www.example.org". The administrator for a TLD controls what second-level names are recognized in that TLD. The administrators of the root domain or root zone control what TLDs are recognized by the DNS. Commonly used TLDs include .ORG, .INFO, .NET, .EDU, .JP and .DE.
In the domain name system (DNS), the top-level domain (TLD) is the highest level of the hierarchy after the root. In a domain name, the TLD is portion of the domain name that appears to the extreme right. Examples are .biz, .com, .gov, .mil, and .org. The top-level domains have certain guidelines attached, but are for the most part available to any registrant, anywhere in the world. Exceptions are the restricted TLDs (rTLDs), which include .aero, .mil, .museum, and .pro, that require the registrant to represent a certain type of entity, or to belong to a certain community. Where appropriate, a top-level domain name can be of geographic significance and hence only available to registrants in a certain locale defined by the TLD. These are called country-code TLDs (ccTLDs).
The Top Level Domain (TLD) is the highest level of the hierarchy after the root. In a domain name, this is the name that appears at the end of the domain name. In the case of the domain name "www.i-DNS.net", the top level domain is "net".
Refers to the rightmost portion of a domain, which is the broadest division in the heirarchical naming scheme on the Internet. Top-level domains are either generic top-level domains (such .com, .org, or .edu) or country code top-level domains (such as .uk, .ca, or .se). Related terms: Domain
The suffix after the final '.' in a website (or 'domain') name. The most common top level domain is '. com' for 'commercial'. Other examples include '. co. uk' for a UK company and '. org' for a non-profit organisation.
A top-level domain (TLD) is the last part of an Internet domain name; that is, the letters which follow the final dot of any domain name. For example, in the domain name www.website.com, the top-level domain is com (or COM, as domain names are not case-sensitive).
