What is a top-level domain?
Up until now, the Internet has been organized into a handful of generic top-level domains (TLDs, or gTLDs) which were limited to three letters — .com, .org, .gov, .net, .biz, .edu, and so on. Until recently, the list of TLDs stood at 22 extensions.
In early 2011, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the international authority over top-level domain names, approved the expansion of the number of generic top-level domains (gTLDs), which included allowing companies and organizations to create domains for their brands.
To make it easier for home buyers, sellers and investors to locate a trusted valued source of real estate information, resources and services online, NAR has applied for the branded .realtor™ top-level domain (TLD) as an alternative to the commonly used .com and .org.
