internet domain suffixes

Below is a listing of all of the types of Internet domain suffixes or Top-Level Domains (TLD) and the associated locations of the domain and/or the type of domain. I keep looking them up, and figured I might as well put up a list of them all for reference.

    how do you go about creating a domain with one of the odd names?

    • geekboytm says:

      @duane – it’s called a domain hack. Basically, just come up with a “clever” word ending in one of the possible domain suffixes, then register the name. Easiest way to find out who handles a domain is to Google the domain. Some domains are restricted to residents and businesses which operate in the country in question; other are actively marketed at a higher premium.
      I’m using one for my site using the .sh of the St Helena domain registry. Tovalu (.tv) markets their domain to television related sites.
