The right part of a domain name is known as top level domain. Domain names are classified into three kinds according to the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA). They are top-level domains (TLDs), Generic top-level domains (gTLDs) and Country-code top-level domains (ccTLDs). TLD domains are the most common domains extensions that if familiar to every website users, such as,.com,.net, domain extension. Generic top-level domains were created with different meanings. Finally, Country-code top-level domains were designed especially for websites related to particular countries, for instance,.cn (China),.uk (United Kingdom), (Romania). Then which type of extensions should you choose for your website? Does it affect your business? If you are expecting local visitors from a particular country (i.e. Canada), it is important for you to register for example,.ca extension to telling people that you are operating out of Canada.

Then with your regular content published, you will gain a large audience base from Canada.
However, if you are going to launch a website with general information so that your audiences have no geography difference, you may be not required to by a specific ccTLDs because you are expecting as many people as possible from all around the world to read your content. Then it is advised that you had better to go for TLDs or gTLDs domains because they will telling the search engines that your website is global in nature, with no bias towards any areas.
Overall, a name plays a prominent role when people discover, remember, think about, talk about, search for, or navigate to a website.
