What is a Top Level Domain (TLD)?
Posted by Support on 20 December 2007 02:25 AM
A top level domain (TLD) is the suffix that is attached to the end of a domain name. For instance, in the domain name mybrand.com, ".com" is the TLD. There are two types of top-level domains: global and country code. Global Top Level Domains (gTLDs) were created to be used by the Internet public, while country code Top Level Domains (ccTLDs) were created to be used by each individual country, as it deems necessary. The global Top Level Domains are as follows:
  • .com

  • .net

  • .org

  • .edu

  • .mil

  • .gov

  • .name

  • .biz

  • .info

The following new global Top Level Domains are expected to be available in 2007:

  • .pro

  • .museum

  • .aero

  • .coop

We offer the .com, .net, .org, .biz and .info global Top Level Domains in addition to various ccTLDs for registration. Some examples of country code Top Level Domains available through aiso.net are as follows:

  • .to (Tonga)

  • .co.uk (United Kingdom)

  • .ca (Canada)

  • .tv (Tuvalu)

  • .us (United States)
