Introduction to Internet Domains - Countries & Codes

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 countries with their 2 and 3 character country codes. The Internet Domain Names are are based on the 2 character country codes. There are a few exceptions though, which I will mention later on....

Here is an example: If you see this address:

http://www.troon.org/peter/

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 code belongs to which country. If you want to know which country is associated with which code you go to this page.
