Exposition or Expo abbreviated

Defined as A large public exhibition of art or trade goods.

A trade fair (trade show, trade exhibition, or expo) is an exhibition organized so that companies in a specific industry can showcase and demonstrate their latest products and services, meet with industry partners and customers, study activities of rivals, and examine recent market trends and opportunities.

Top Level Domain

A top level domain, otherwise known as TLD is one of the domains at the highest level in the hierarchical Domain Name System of the internet. The top level domain names are installed in the root zone of the name space. For all domains in lower levels, it is the last part of the domain name, that is, the last label of a fully qualified domain name. For example, in the domain name www.example.com, the top level domain is com. Responsibility for management of most top level domains is delegated to specific organizations by the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which operates the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority, and is in charge of maintaining the DNS root zone.

Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers currently distinguishes the following groups of top-level domains:

Country Code Top Level Domains

A country code top-level domain (ccTLD) is an Internet top-level domain generally used or reserved for a country, sovereign state, or dependent territory identified with a country code.

Some examples of ccTLDs that TLDexpo has includes:

.ca is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for Canada.

.in is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for India.

.nz is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for New Zealand.

.uk is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the United Kingdom.

.za is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for South Africa.

Generic Top Level Domains

Generic top-level domains (gTLDs) are one of the categories of top level domains (TLDs) maintained by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority for use in the Domain Name System of the Internet. A top level domain is the last level of every fully qualified domain name. They are called generic for historic reasons; initially, they were contrasted with country-specific TLDs

Examples of gTLDs that TLDexpo offers include:

.com

.net

.org

Sponsored Top Level Domains

A sponsored top-level domain (sTLD) is one of the categories of top-level domains (TLDs) maintained by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority for use in the Domain Name System of the Internet. IANA currently distinguishes 3 groups of top-level domains: country-code top-level domains (ccTLD), generic top-level domains (gTLD) and infrastructure top-level domain.

A sponsored TLD is a specialized top-level domain that has a sponsor representing a specific community served by the domain. The communities involved are based on ethnic, geographical, professional, technical or other theme concepts proposed by private agencies or organizations that establish and enforce rules restricting the eligibility of registrants to use the TLD.

Generally speaking, a sponsored TLD is a specialized TLD that has a sponsor representing the narrower community that is most affected by the TLD, while an unsponsored TLD operates under policies established by the global Internet community directly through the ICANN process.

Some of the sTLDs that TLDexpo offers include:

.bid

.city

Geographic TLD

A GeoTLD is a top level domain in the Domain Name System of the Internet using the name of or invoking an association with a geographical, geopolitical, ethnic, linguistic or cultural community.

Examples geoTLDs that TLDexpo may offer include:

.africa

.quebec

TLDexpo was born out of the merging of the words TLD which is short for top level domain and EXPO which is short for exposition. TLDexpo currently operates under three TLDs including TLDexpo.ca which is focused on the Canadian domain name marketplace, TLDexpo.uk which is focused on the United Kingdom domain name marketplace and TLDexpo.com which sells domain names to the English speaking internet as a whole.
