Country Code Top-Level Domains


Hostway Team

Country code top-level domains (TLDs) were intended to represent individuals and organizations within the designated country. There are well over 200 country code TLDs available for registration today. They are a good fit for businesses based in the country or as domain aliases for the business Web site of a multinational company.

Some of these extensions create words or acronyms that are irresistible to people outside of the country. Most notable is the country of Tuvalu's .tv, which has been adopted in the US by members of the entertainment and television industries.

.Tv carries no registration restrictions, but some other country code TLDs do. So, remember to check the requirements before you get your heart set on a country code domain name
