    Why TLD is important in a Domain name?

    I have bought a TLD but don’t know its importance. Can Anyone will explain why it is so important in a Domain?

    Yes, I'm also slightly confused between TLD and URL.

      What exactly is a TLD? URL It is, as far as I am aware, the Internet address.

        Yes. You are right (User3). URL is the internet address. TLD stands for “TOP Level Domain”. TLD is the last name of a domain.
        Some examples of TLDs are:
        1) .com
        2) .org
        3) .gov
        4) .net

          Ok. Is it a part of the name of the domain?

            A top-level domain was created to help classify a characteristic of a website, such as its purpose, owner, or location. Because cars.com and cars.org are not the same, this increased the number of accessible domain names.

            Example:
            accuwebhosting - Domain Name
            .com - TLD

            The number of TLDs available has grown dramatically in the recent decade. When registering a new domain, classic TLDs are still extremely valuable. It's not a particularly long list, especially when it comes to public possibilities. It's also presumably a list you've seen before.
            • .Com: Commercial (Open to Public)
            • .Org: Organization (Open to Public)
            • .Net: Network organizations (Open to Public)
            • .Gov: U.S. Government
            • .Mil:: Military
            • .Edu: Educational institutions (universities typically)
