Generic Country Code Top-Level Domains (ccTLDs) offer the ease of registration typically associated with generic top-level domains (gTLDs) like .com or .org, with the added benefit of relevance across various categories. Unlike traditional ccTLDs, which are primarily known for their geographic ties, generic ccTLDs such as .tv, .me, and .ai have gained popularity for their dual use of both generic and industry-specific terms. For example, the .ai domain has become closely associated with artificial intelligence.

Recognizing that website owners and users often see these domains as more generic than country-targeted, Google now treats these generic country domains as gTLDs in its search algorithms. This means that businesses and individuals using these domains are not limited to a particular region but can instead enjoy a global reach, and connect with a larger, more diverse audience.
