domain extension


Senior Member
Qatar domains’ count crossed the 22,000+ mark and is showing steady growth in registration from regional and international entities. The growth has been consistently strong considering ICANN has delegated hundreds of new domain extension that have been launched and available for registration and that has made consumers spoilt for choice and many of the legacy extensions that were earlier leading have experienced considerable losses.

What could be meant by "domain extension" please?

    From that sentence, I think it's the same as top-level domain (TLD): .qa for Qatar, .com for general commercial, or the many new ones ICANN has created like .aero and .museum.
