History of Domain By Country

Domain names for countries are determined by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, which began officially providing a domain name by country in 2018, although the United States began using .us in 1985. They are a relatively new registration for domain names for the Internet.

Every domain name by country is two letters long and is developed by using the letters in the nation’s name. These two letters are called the country code to- level domain or also the ccTLD. Every country that uses these domain names must comply with international regulations.
