Introduction to Internet Domains - Codes & Countries

Don't you ever wonder where a certain computer host is located, when you are surfing through the web? I mean: If you see a certain URL, don't you ever wonder in which country the computer you are using at that moment - the host - is located? On this page you can find a list of Internet Domain Names. These names are based on 2 character country codes. There are a few exceptions though, which I will mention later on....

An example: If you see this address:

http://www.euronet.nl/~petertr/

or something like this: pajtroon@dds.nl

you are able to know that both adresses are located in the Netherlands, since .nl stands for The Netherlands.

This is the syntax for an email adress:

user@hostname.domain

This is the syntax for a HTTP URL:

http://servername.hostname.domain/~username

For most internet adresses this is the syntax:

servername.hostname.domain

Most domain names are equal to the country codes. There are a few exceptions, which I will mention here:

On this page you can find which country belongs to which code. If you want to know which code is associated with which country you can find more information on the index of these pages.
