TLD is the acronym for Top-Level Domain.
The last segment of a domain name after the last dot. A top-level domain is also known as a domain extension. TLDs often serve to recognize the purpose of a website. For example, a .edu top-level domain allows users to immediately identify the site as an educational institution. A .gov top-level domain allows users to identify the site as a government institution.
