What is a gTLD (generic Top Level Domain)?

gTLD stands for generic Top Level Domain and is a common term used in the domain industry. It refers to all the domain extensions that are not assigned to a specific country (ccTLD). GTLDs are mostly unrestricted and because of their generic nature and availability, used by people worldwide.

Among the most popular is .COM, which is used for commercial websites and .ORG, which is dedicated to non-profit organisations. Only a few gTLDs are restricted and reserved for specific communities, like .MUSEUM for museums or .AERO, which is only available to companies in the aviation industry.
