TLD Reference Chart

The TLD reference chart is a great way to find information specific to a TLD, such as the registry provider, grace and redemption periods, and other details about the TLD.

TLD types

ccTLD Country-based TLD
gTLD General TLD
geoTLD Geographical TLD


To narrow your search on the reference sheet, you can set filters to search for TLDs associated with a specific registry or to see what domains are auto-renew only, and the list goes on.

  1. Open the TLD reference Chart and select the Filter Icon
  2. Select the filters you want.

Column search

You can also sort columns by clicking on the drop-down icon in the upper right corner of a column. 

  1. Select the drop-down icon of the column you wish to search, then select Sort sheet.
  2. In the Filters view, select the three verticle lines.
  3. Select your filters and choose OK.

API call

We try to keep the information on the reference chart up to date. However, if you want to check the information's accuracy, you can do so by whitelisting your IP first, then by running a GetTLDdetails API call.

Note: API calls are available to reseller accounts only, not retail accounts.
