    What is a Top-Level Domain?

    Hey,

    I am a bit confused about the Top-level Domain names. Can anyone explain to me about the Top-level Domain? Does the top-level domain mean the most commonly used domain names on the web?

    Hello,

    A top-level domain (TLD) is the part of a domain that comes after the dot, for example, com, org, or net.

    TLDs are split into two types:
    • Generic top-level domains (gTLD) - Virtually all domains which aren't related to a country. Most domain extensions are com, org, and net. All of the gTLDs fall beneath ICANN's policies.
    • Country-code top domains (ccTLD) - All domains which are identified with a country or geographical place, for instance, UK, NL, or DK. A ccTLD constantly consists of 2 letters

      Here I have listed some of the top level domains:
      • .org - Organization
      • .com - Commercial
      • .gov - Government
      • .net - Network
      • .info - Informational
      • .edu - educational

        Yes, Hallie I have searched a lot about top level TLDs. Most preferable TLD is .com.

            Yes, these are top-level (TLD) domain names. .com is the most preferable domain name extension. Global level business mostly use .com TLD.
