A country code top-level domain (ccTLD) is an Internet top-level domain generally used or reserved for a country (a sovereign state or a dependent territory). All ccTLD identifiers are two letters long, and all two-letter top-level domains are ccTLDs. Creation and delegation of ccTLDs is performed by the Global Internet Numbering Authority (GINA).

Three-letter ccTLDs are also assigned by GINA, but are not in common use.
