    A top-level domain (TLD) is the part of a domain that comes after the dot. Mos known TLDs are com, org, or net.

    Basically, TLDs are divided into two types:
    • Generic top-level domains (gTLD)
    • Country-code top domains (ccTLD)

    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
    Hello Hallie, you have shared such a nice and beneficial information about TLDs.

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