    Domain extensions, also known as Top Level Domains or TLDs, are the suffixes or the last part of a domain name - the letters that come after the dot to the right of any domain name. For example, most URL addresses end with .com - this is an example of a domain extension or TLD.

    New top-level domains are introduced by a body known as the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), which is also in charge of domain names and IP addresses. ICANN does this with the help ofInternet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), which is in charge of assigning the operators of TLDs.

    There are several different categories ofTop-Level-Domains

    Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs)
    These are the most common domains and the ones most people are familiar with. For a long time, there were only a few to choose from, including .com, .org, and .net. However, since 2014, hundreds of more industry or niche focused gTLDs have been released, giving you many more options to choose from, for example .coffee, .design, .blog.
    Generic-Restricted Top-Level Domains
    Although these are similar to generic top-level domains, they are intended to be more restricted, and require some extra information to be provided when you register them. Examples include .biz, .name, .pro.
    Sponsored Top-Level Domains (sTLD)
    Sponsored top-level domains are specialized TLDs, and are available only to specific groups. Although sTLDs are part of the gTLD group, they are intended for niche audiences with restrictions on who can register one, and the type of website that they can be used for. Examples include .aero. .edu. .gov, .travel, and so on.
    Country Code Top-Level Domains (ccTLD)
    Each country has a set of country code domain extensions. Extensions such as .nz, .co.nz, .org.nz and .net.nz are all examples of New Zealand ccTLDs.

    They are made up of three parts: a top-level domain and sometimes called an extension or domain suffix, a domain name or IP address, and an optional subdomain. The combination of only the domain name and top-level domain is known as a root domain.

    When buying a domain, it's important to understand that you must choose only Generic Top Level Domains (gTLD). These domains can help you stay competitive in search engines and will also increase your brand reputation.

    Domain extension refers to the notation found at the end of web addresses. The extension is used to specify a country code or any web category. For example, .edu is a domain extension to specify educational institution as the web category.

    A domain name is an identification string that defines a realm of administrative autonomy, authority or control within the Internet. Domain names are used in various networking contexts and for application-specific naming and addressing purposes.
