ccTLD

(Country Code Top Level Domain) A top-level domain (TLD) name on the Internet that is reserved for a country or territory. For example, .us and .ca are the ccTLDs for the U.S. and Canada. Rather than use country codes, many organizations often choose TLDs such as .com and .org. See country code and IANA.
