You’ve probably come across the .TV domain extension while searching the Web for video and other multi-media content. But this top-level domain is more than just a rich-media-friendly extension; it is traditionally affiliated with the tiny and remote Pacific island nation of Tuvalu. Read on for a primer on this very special TLD, which you can, of course, register from Go Daddy. The .tv country-code top-level domain name (ccTLD) is an extension that provides a highly memorable Internet address and represents the country of Tuvalu. However, .tv is not exclusively available for residents of Tuvalu — in fact anyone can register a .tv name. For obvious reasons, this extension is closely tied to dynamic video content, making these domain names uniquely suited to Web sites associated with rich media.
If you’re interested in registering a .tv domain from Go Daddy, this is how you do it:
Go to the Go Daddy home page and enter the desired domain name in the domain search field.
Select .tv from the drop-down list.
Click Go, and then proceed through the screens to Checkout and complete the purchase.
.tv domain names can be up to 63 characters, with a minimum of three characters, and can contain letters (a to z), numbers (0 to 9), and hyphens (except at the beginning or end of the domain name). You cannot register domain names with special characters such as & and #.
