Domain names can be divided into three categories of domain extensions:

  • Generic top-level domains (gTLDs): These domains are the most common and are listed in the table below. They include .com, .net, .org, .biz and others. gTLDs can be registered by anyone in the world.
  • Country code top-level domains (ccTLDs): These domains include the two-letter country codes for each country (for example, .ke for Kenya, .ca for Canadian domains, .uk for UK domains, .cn for Chinese domains, and so on).
  • Sponsored top-level domains (sTLDs): These are new domain names that are not part of the regular top-level domain system and are commonly sponsored by organizations. Examples include .mobi (for mobile devices), .name (for individuals) and .pro (for professionals). Others include .gov (used by the US government), .edu (used by post-secondary institutions.)

    The biggest impact TLDs have is affecting what visitors think of your website. However, don’t underestimate the importance of public perception. Going with the wrong TLD may make your site look unprofessional. You could even end up with potential visitors landing on another site entirely, if they misremember your TLD.

    You may have noticed that domain names come with a choice of endings – .com, .biz, and even .pizza. These endings are called Top-Level Domains (TLDs). It’s important to understand what TLDs are, as well as the impact that the right (or wrong) one can have on your site
