TLD stands for Top-Level Domain. A TLD is the most generic portion of a domain name. It is found in the rightmost position of a domain name.

There are two types of TLDs:

  • Country code TLDs - called ccTLD
  • Generic TLDs - called gTLD

Traditional TLDs

We offer a variety of domain name extensions including the newest extensions available on the market. Obviously a .com extension remains the default option, but an extension can be used for many purposes. As it is becoming more and more important to protect brand identity, companies are registering multiple TLDs. Here are some commonly registered domain extensions to help you choose a perfect domain extension.
