A Top-Level Domain (or TLD) is the suffix of the domain following the last dot. This is considered the top-level domain as it is the most generic.
The most common TLD is .com. This ending is used all over the world, although this was originally only used by US American companies.
Example of domain structure:
Among the top-level domains, there are two types:
|Type||Extension Example||Abbreviation convention|
|Country-specific (ccTLD)||.co.uk, .us, .mx||Restricted to a two-letter extension|
- this also includes the so-called new Top Level Domains (New gTLD)
|.com, .net, .info
.website, .company, .blog
|Minimum of three or more letters|
