What is TLD?

A TLD (Top-Level Domain) is the part of a domain name that comes after the final dot in the domain name. There are several different types of TLDs, including generic TLDs (gTLDs) and country-code TLDs (ccTLDs).

Some examples of gTLDs include .com, .net, .org, and .info. These are the most common TLDs and are used for a wide range of purposes, including commercial, non-profit, and informational websites.

ccTLDs are two-letter TLDs that are specific to a particular country or territory, such as .uk for the United Kingdom and .cn for China. These TLDs are typically used by websites that are specific to a particular country or region.

TLDs are an important part of the domain name system (DNS) and are used to identify the type or purpose of a website. They are used in conjunction with the second-level domain (SLD) and the subdomain to form a complete domain name. For example, in the domain name "", the TLD is .com, the SLD is "example", and the subdomain is "www".
