- Domain Names
Where does the special domains name like .FM, .LA, & .TV come from?
The special domain names are called ccTLDs (Country Code based Top Level Domains) and are assigned to a specific country that allows for marketing of the TLD. As an example the .FM domain extension is assigned to the Federated States of Micronesia and is made available through dotFM. You can access the full list of domain extensions at the IANA site (http://www.iana.org/root-whois/index.html).
