Open access


One of the two highest levels of Internet domains has its geographical dimension. It consists of the so-called country-code domains (ccTLDs) assigned to the individual countries of the world according to the standard ISO 3166. Some of these domains took over the role of worldwide functional domains and large income from their sale caused economic and social changes in the countries with attractive country-code domains.
