Generic top-level domain (gTLD) differ from the country code top-level domains (ccTLD) domains – they are not for any country, but for verified organizations and persons. Previously we published the List of All Top Level Domains (TLD). As Generic top-level domain (gTLD) has more authority, intentional wrong information, misinformation published through Generic top-level domain (gTLD) will be of higher importance and the organization or person responsible can be legally challenged and penalized in real life. Generic top-level domain (gTLD) in most cases, can never be deleted or de-listed from any public directory without any proper reason. This exclusively excludes the Unrestricted generic top-level domains.
Basics of Generic top-level domain (gTLD)
Within the domain names, there are two categories : sponsored and unsponsored/ not sonsored. The first are supported for the private organizations, while the latter, being deemed of public interest, are maintained and regulated directly by ICANN and international entities. Unsponsored generic domains such as. com, .name, .net. org .info, etc.. follow a strict policy and regulations set by the ICANN, which somehow can give maximum guarantee of quality to the end user. Sponsored generic domains such as. aero, follow a set of policy and regulation is shared between ICANN and the sponsoring agency.
