What is TLD? – Definition

TLD (Top-Level Domain) is a part of every domain name, placed after the last dot, e.g. .com or .es. It is at the highest level of the hierarchical Domain Name System (DNS) structure. A particular domain on which a website is located (e.g. Delante) is a second or next level subdomain.

These domains are managed by IANA and ICANN.

Types of TLD

There are two types of TLD:

  • gTLD – generic top-level domains which contain 3 or more characters, e.g. .com, .org, .net, .edu, .gov;
  • ccTLD – (country code) they are set for specific countries and regions and contain 2 characters, e.g. .it, .eu, .de.
