Country Code and ccTLD (country code Top Level Domain)

This is page two of a series, and it lists and discusses country codes and ccTLD's. Page one of this series lists and discusses Language Codes and Attributes. Page three discusses gTLD (generic Top Level Domain) issues.

IANA

The top level domain (TLD) system is run by IANA (Internet Assigned Numbers Authority) which also assigns IP addresses and ranges, ports, and other related attributes.

ICANN

For those of you who were wondering, ICANN is the private contractor with an MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with the US government that currently runs IANA, so sometimes people use the organizations interchangeably. They are not, however. As a matter of fact there are a lot of people who are not happy with ICANN.

One of my clients is Industry Canada, and I discovered a very well written description of ICANN in their website I'd like to share: Consultation on ICANN reform.

Registering a ccTLD

There are many registrars for ccTLD's. I personally use CanReg for .ca domains, and BulkRegister for the rest.
