Country Code Top Level Domains (CCTLDs)
What are Country Code Top Level Domains (CCTLDs)
Domain names are assigned to countries and territories based on the ISO 3166 standard. A domain name consists of one or more parts, separated by dots. The part on the left is the domain name, and the part on the right is the top level domain (TLD). The TLDs are assigned by ICANN, the organization that manages the DNS root zone. There are a number of different TLDs, including .com, .net, and .org. There are also a number of country code TLDs (ccTLDs), which are assigned to specific countries and territories. For example, the ccTLD for the United States is .us, and the ccTLD for Canada is .ca. There are a number of different ccTLDs, and each one has its own rules and regulations. Some ccTLDs are open to anyone who wants to register a domain name, while others are restricted to residents of the country or territory. It’s important to research the specific rules for each ccTLD before registering a domain name.
