The Top Level Domains (TLDs) in use today are a relic from the first days of the World Wide Web (WWW). The idea of grouping web sites into domains was to organize sites according to their purpose, so users (at least in the US) would know whether they were visiting an educational (.edu), military (.mil), governmental (.gov), or commercial (.com) website. In the mid 1980s, 250 Top Level Domains were introduced: 244 country-code TLDs (ccTLDs) and six generic TLDs (gTLDs) (.arpa, .com, .edu, .gov, .mil, and .org). The ccTLDs and gTLDs have dominated the Internet ever since.

  • gTLDs (generic TLDs)


    Generic TLDs (.com, .net, .org, .edu, etc.) will only be delegated by ICANN to a selected group of companies against high costs. It is currently extremely difficult to register gTLDs. The rules to register domain names under gTLDs are different for each registry. The authorized registrar is ICANN. The traditional gTLDs where created to create an artificial limitation of availabe domain names available on the web. The introduction of corporate and public TLDs will change all this.

  • ccTLDs (country code TLDs)


    These two letter labels are reserved as country code identifiers under ISO 3166. Two character codes will only be delegated to a competent government authority associated with that code. It is not possible to register any ccTLDs. The authorized registrar is IANA.

  • cTLDs (corporate TLDs)


    Corporate TLDs are delegated by approved and accredited TLD registrars to corporations that want to secure their name on the Internet. Registering cTLDs is simple (for corporations only). UN1D is such an approved and accredited TLD registrar. Click here to register your corporate TLD now.

  • pTLDs (public TLDs)


    The registration of a public TLD is available to everyone and is based on First Come, First Served (FCFS) system through many authorized TLD Registrars such as UN1D. Click here to register your public TLD now. In addition, many Public TLDs Registrants have on-line registries available that allows anyone to register domain names (SLDs) under that TLD.

  • There is also an altogether different category, called dormant TLDs. These TLDs are registered and reserved for future use, dTLDs are not available, and there are no Domain Names associated with them. Any newly registered TLD is a dormant TLD by default. However when the TLD is resolving domain names, it is alive. It has become one of the 4 kinds of TLDs mentioned above.
