What is a TLD?
TLD stands for ‘top-level domain’ and is the part of a domain that comes after the dot, for example, com, org or net.
Since top-level domains are categorized based on what the website is associated with, it can be used to identify the website’s purpose, owner, or geographical location – without even seeing the website’s content.
For example, the top-level domain . edu indicates that the website is used for educational purposes or owned by educational institutions.
