What do TLD and SLD of a domain name stand for:
A domain name consists of two basic parts: TLD and SLD. TLD stands for top-level domain and represents the last part of a domain name in an Internet address. SLD is the abbreviation for second-level domain and identifies the part of the domain name that you personally invent and that precedes the TLD. For instance, in the domain name ‘mybestdomain.com’, the TLD is ’.com’ and the SLD is ‘mybestdomain’.

What you should keep in mind when choosing your domain name’s TLD:
When choosing your TLD, you should consider the fact that most of the domain extensions, mostly country code TLDs, have particular requirements and restrictions. You should pay attention to the notes present for some of the domain names, and more particularly, to the special registration conditions applicable to some of them.
