  What's Overseas Domain (gTLD/ccTLD)?

TLD is the abbreviated name of "Top Level Domain", gTLD is "generic TLD", ccTLD is the abbreviated name of "country code TLD", and the domain currently used in the world is roughly classified into these two. Moreover, about the domestic domain, all are classified into ccTLD, synthesize gTLD and ccTLD domain classification except ccTLD of this Japan, and are calling it the "overseas domain." Moreover, there are domain classification, such as ".COM", ".NET", ".ORG" etc. which everyone in the world can register freely, and domain classification for which certain conditions, such as ".EDU", ".GOV", ".MIL", are needed in gTLD. On the other hand, although ccTLD is the domain classification assigned to each country/area, there is domain classification which limits registration of ".TV", ".TO", ".CC" etc. to the domestic or areas, such as domain classification, ".JP", ".US", ".AU", etc. which have been permitted to the whole world.
