What is a TLD?
TLD stands for “top-level domain” and refers to the rightmost part (the dot extension) of every domain name. TLDs typically tell a story about the domain name associated with it, such as the geographical area it was created in, its purpose, or the organization that owns it.
Most people are familiar with a handful of the original top-level domains like: .com (commercial), .org (organization), or .edu (education). These TLDs have become very crowded and it is hard to find domains that you can register. Thankfully, since 2014, over 2,000 new extensions have been released covering all areas from clubs and hobbies to industry, science and technology, and geographic locations. The addition of new generic top-level domains has taken some of the stress off the original gTLDs.
