What is a TLD?

"TLD" stands for "Top Level Domain". The Top Level Domain (TLD) is the address at the highest point of the hierarchy. It is at the end of the domain, separated from the rest with a point. Each TLD is used by a particular authority management. There are country-specific TLDs (country code Top Level Domains - ccTLDs like .at, .ch, .com, .eu,...) and domains that generically specify the type of the page content (Generic Top Level Domains - gTLDs, such as: .com, .net, .org, .biz, .tv, .fm, ...)
