Long ReadHere UsingJoomla.com gives you a list, in alphabetical order, of  country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) extensions.

A country code Top Level Domain is usually reserved for, and indicates a sovereign state, dependent territory, or country. Such as .uk for United Kingdom, or .au for Australia, .nz for New Zealand etc.

Some domain extensions have no restrictions on who can register the domain, while other domain names have their domain name authority place restrictions on who can register domains within their control, such as having to be a citizen, resident, or business of and/or located in their country - Australia is one such country where their domain name extension(s) has (have) restrictions. Also, choosing a .eu domain name requires you to be either a citizen of and in the EU (European Union) or a business operating in the EU.

Before deciding on a country specific domain extension you are advised to find out if any restrictions or conditions are applicable.

The ccTLD extension usually appears at the end of your domain name.

Food for thought:

If you are able to register a country code Top Level Domain (ccTLD) you might consider your association with, or expertise in the country and one of its attractions.

For example, if you have knowledge of fishing in New Zealand, would fishing.nz (fishing [dot] nz) be good for you ?
