Internet Country Codes

In addition to the more common internet extensions such as .COM, .ORG, there are a whole series of other codes that represent each country or territory in the world. Some of these, such as .US for United States, can only be used by sites that have a presence in that country (del.icio.us the social networking site uses the .us creatively make its spelling the same as the word delicious other country codes can be used by anyone . Some of the more popular ones, because the extension implies something other than the country are:

.pw for Palu but implies Personal Website

.tv for Tuvalu but implies Television

.ws for Western Samoa but implies Web Site

Each of the above is a sovereign nation but their country codes are becoming more common as the code represents something else in most people's minds.

Below is a list of country codes in alphabetical order by country or territory. For a more complete explanation of country codes and their history and use please see my article on this entitled Cyber Geography - Internet Country Codes Explained
