What are the government domain name suffixes?
To distinguish themselves from the sea of .COMs and .ORGs, many government sites are registered under different domain name suffixes. Here are the principle suffixes available to government sites:
For more information on .COM, .NET, .EDU and .ORG suffixes, go to InterNIC, a U.S. Department of Commerce site that has public information about domain name registration.
Only federal government entities are eligible for the .GOV suffix. At Government-Wide Registration Service, federal agencies can register for the .GOV or .FED.US suffixes.
All state and local governments, K-12 districts and schools, community colleges, museums and libraries can register under .US. For registration information, visit The US Domain.
