Country Code Top level Domain (ccTLD)
TLDs with two letters (such as .in - India, .cn-China, .fr- France, .kr -South Korea, .uk - United Kingdom etc) have been established for more than 250 countries and external territories. These are referred to as "country-code" TLDs or judt "ccTLDs". ccTLDs are assigned by IANA or Internet Assigned Numbers Authority based on the ISO 3166-1alpha-2 country codes. Designated managers operate the ccTLDs according to local policies, which are adapted to meet the specific needs of the country or territory involved such as economic, linguistic, cultural and legal circumstances.
