Letters A-E: Country Specific Domain Extensions

Not all domains end in .com, .org, or .edu. Different countries use different suffixes, usually two letters. If you encounter a Web site with a unique two-letter domain extension starting anywhere between A – E, look here for its country equivalent.

Ever see a Web address that doesn’t end in .com, .org, or .edu? Most likely, the Web site is hosted on a server in another country, or, the origin of business is in another country. Here’s a list of different country domain extensions and their corresponding countries sorted alphabetically according to the file extension.
