A TLD is the last part of any domain name
.com is the TLD for the name
As described combination name and TLD makes the domain name unique
All the TLD needs to be aaproved by ICANN and ICANN approves a particular TLD.
The TLD can be broadly classified into:
These TLD are very commonly used
.com for Commercial Website
.net for Network website
.org for Non Profit Organization
.info for informative sites
Generic Restricted TLD
These TLD are not for everyone
.BIZ for Business
.NAME for Person Name
.PRO for Certified Professional
Country Code specific TLD (ccTLD)
These TLD are specifically for countries,
.in for India
.co.in for India Third Level domain
.it for Italy
.us for United States
Similarly there are different country specific TLD.
Also there are some Government reserved TLD live .gov.in, etc.
Enough of this theory, now get practical. Yes, though we have hundreds of TLDs available but the most frequently used are .com, .net, .org.
Once a TLD is booked for name, it will not available for others for a year or until he leaves the domain. So domain name is precious. Some does business with domain name as a stock market. So if you think a name for TLD you like, its obivous you won’t get is one shot, you need to try some permutation and combination with words.
