Country Codes used in Internet Domain

Before 20 years it wasn't difficult to know on the web that exactly what part of the world you were visiting. If you were on a .com site, you were in the United States. And there weren't too many country code extensions to worry about.
Now, a .com site could be anywhere in the world. My site is registered as www.rilwansaeed.com. It may be stored on a US server, but it is administered and maintained here in Maldives. 
The varied country codes, known as TLD's (Top Level Domains), also give web masters and designers a greater choice of name combinations to use for their sites, but it depends on which extension you want. Some country code administrators only allow local sites to utilize them. An example of a country code that has been released for general registration is .tv. It's the country code originally designed to be the official addressing for the tiny island nation of Tuvalu - population of around eleven thousand. The country code is probably one of its biggest exports!
The following is a list of all current country extensions.

US Based TLD's: 
.com - Commercial
.edu - Educational
.gov - US Government
.int  - International Organisations
.mil - US Dept of Defense
.net - Networks
.org - Organisations
.pro - Professionals
.biz - Businesses
.info - Informational
.aero - Travel
.museum - You guessed it!
.coop - Co-operative
.name - Personal names
