You have seen already plenty of TLD extensions – .com, .org, .net, and even some more exotic like .ninja, .dance, or .fail. But why do they exist? What is the purpose of TLD? Now you will know the answers!
What is the Top-level domain (TLD)?
The Top-Level Domain (TLD) is the second-highest level of the DNS. It is the extension, just after the second-level domain name of a website. Most popular ones are .com, .net, and .org. There are many TLDs out there, and they are two main categories. Country Code Top-Level Domains (ccTLD) that are used to indicate the different countries in the world and Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLD) that could be anything with or without meaning.
