Chapter 2. naming your site > choosing a suffix

choosing a suffix

When you register a domain name today, you can choose your suffix (or “top-level domain” as they’re called). Although .com is by far the most popular, there are currently 260 other options: 247 country-specific domains and 13 global top-level domains.

There haven’t always been so many choices. When the domain name system was first introduced, only six top-level domains were created.
