Country Code Top-Level Extensions (ccTLD)

A country code top-level domain (ccTLD) is an Internet top-level domain generally used or reserved for a country or a dependent territory. ccTLD identifiers are two letters long, and all two-letter top-level domains are ccTLDs. Creation and delegation of ccTLDs is performed by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), and with certain exceptions noted below corresponds to the ISO 3166-1 alpha-2 country codes maintained by the ISO 3166 Maintenance Agency.

Country Code Second-Level Extensions (ccSLD)

A country code second-level domain (ccSLD) is a second-level domain to a country code top-level domain. It may be set apart by the domain name registry for the registration of third-level domains or registered to a third party as a subdomain. Many registries reuse common top-level domain names at the second-level such as "com", "net" and "org", e.g. .com.sg.
