Evolution of .cc

Most internet users know and recognize what a top level domain (TLD) is, like .com, .net. and .name. It’s what you see to the right of the dot.

But different categories of TLDs also exist, such as a ccTLD, which stands for country code top level domain. This two-letter classification is generally reserved and used within a specific country or dependent territory, such as Japan (.jp), Germany (.de), France (.fr), Indonesia (.id) or the United Kingdom (.uk)

The ccTLD for Cocos (Keeling) Islands, an Australian territory with less than 600 in population1, is .cc. But this country code’s purpose has evolved, and extends beyond this tiny island in the Indian Ocean.

Today, a .cc is globally known as an ideal domain for anyone who wants to establish an online presence. More important, a .cc is a trusted domain name powered by Verisign.
