Long ReadHere UsingJoomla.com lists, alphabetically, a number of Geographic Top Level Domain extensions. Also referred to as: GeoTLD.

Some "geo" or "Geographical" domain names are sometimes referred to as Cultural domain names because they are primarily aimed at serving a specific cultural heritage.

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.

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

You might want to choose a Geographical Top Level Domain (geoTLD) if you have an affinity with a town, city, continent, geographical region or geographical area.

Food for thought:

If you are able to register a geoTLD you might consider your association with, or expertise in the geographical area or city.

For example if you have knowledge of local travel in Barcelona, would travelin.barcelona (travel in [dot] Barcelona) be good for you ?

Please note that not all of the following geoTLD extensions are available to register immediately, and not all Domain Registrars are able to accommodate registration of some, any, or all domain extensions. So, if you are interested in exploring the registration of s geoTLD - you might need to shop-around various Domain Registrars.

The purpose of providing this list here is to give you some "food-for-thought" in what might be possible.

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