A Generic Top Level Domain, or gTLD, is basically any TLD that is not a ccTLD. Previously, gTLDs were limited to being three or more characters. But with the addition of the New gTLD program, two character gTLDs may now be registered. Examples of gTLDs include [[.com]], [[.org]], and [[.info]]. [[sTLD]]s, such as [[.travel]], and [[GeoTLD]]s, such as [[.asia]] and [[.cat]], are a subset of gTLDs.

A Country-Code Top Level Domain, or ccTLD, is a TLD with two characters, specifically designed for a particular country, sovereign state or autonomous territory. [[.uk]], [[.de]], and [[.cn]] are all examples of ccTLDs.
