Domain Endings of the WorldBy Staff


domain

Have you ever looked at your URL and wondered, “What the heck does .cn, .br, .tz, .kr, .ro at the end of the URL stand for? Well, look at the world map above and you will get that answer! If it is too small for you to see, please proceed to Bytelevel!

At the end of every URL and email address is a top-level domain (TLD). Although .com is the world’s most popular TLD, it is far from alone. There are more than 260 TLDs in use around the world, most of which are country code top-level domains (ccTLDs). The Country Codes of the World map includes 245 country codes, which encompasses all United Nations countries as well as numerous islands and territories. Each two-digit code is aligned over the country it represents and is color coded with the legend below for quick and easy reference. [Thanks John Yunker and Gizmodo]
