Internet country domains list (TLDs)

 

A country-code TLDs, or ccTLDs, refer to domain extensions ( letters that appear after your choice domain name) specific to a particular region, area or country. Some of these ccTLDs include .ca (Canada), .co.UK (United Kingdom) and .com.au (Australia).

 

Below is a compiled list of all ccTLDs ( Top-level; domain for different countries). These domains are maintained by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). They are responsible for global coordination of the IP address, DNS Root and every other Internet Protocol resource.

 

A top-level domain (TLD) is at the peak of the domain name system. The Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) recognises three main groups of TLDs- the top-level infrastructure domain, generic top-level domains (gTLD), country code top-level domain (ccTLD). Nowadays, most websites only make use of ccTLDs and gTLDs.

 

Generic TLDs are domain names that end in .biz, .com, .info, .net, and so on. A country code TLDs are domain names that end with country-specific extensions like .ng, .uk, .nz, .fr, and so on. These types of domains come with unique offers and benefits that we feel will be a changer for your website. Local top-level domains (ccLTDs) come with benefits that you definitely don’t want to miss out on!

 

 

  • ccTLDs offer Local Targeting and SEO Benefits

One of the benefits of using ccTLDs is that it is country specific. It allows you target traffic from a particular region of the world. Let’s say you want traffic from the United State of America to your U.S based website; you may need to consider using .co.us as your domain extension. What this basically does is that it makes sure you show up in the search results of people living in the U.S, rather than the United Kingdom or Russia or Australia or any other region of the world.

 

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is not left out as it increases your SEO value for any search result that is country-based. This is as a result of search engines displaying different results, including local ones, depending on the visitor’s IP address. If an individual living in the United States of America searches for gyms in the U.S. your U.S.-based gy,’s website might rank higher in search than if you didn’t have a .co.us ccTLD.

 

  •  ccTLDs instill Buyer Confidence

ccTLDs boost the confidence of your website visitors. Since it’s a local website, website visitors may feel more confident in purchasing from an address they are familiar with than from a forign address. Also, most people prefer doing business and visiting sites in their native language, locality and currency.

 

 

  1. ccTLDs allow you to bring out your creativity

One of the tricks that most successful companies are arousing to build a strong brand around their domain name is what is known as domain hack. This means when a word is formed using a combination of both the domain name and ccTLDs. For Instance, food.ie uses the Ireland ccTLDs, beach.es uses the Spanish ccTLD, and subscri.be uses Belgium ccTLD. You can also use a call to action or phrase like help.us. Or check.in. The variety of combinations you can make is limitless!
