What is common between the island country of Tuvalu and rich media websites? Well, it is that both residents of Tuvalu and owners of rich media content sites use one and the same top-level domain - .TV. Actually, the .TV domain name is freely available for registration to anyone. If you wish to get your unique .TV address quickly and with minimum formalities - use the .TV domain registration and transfer services of NTC Hosting.
The .TV TLD
It is curious indeed how the official Internet country code top-level domain for such a tiny island nation as Tuvalu has become one of the most preferred TLDs today. Here we can remember the case with .ME - a ccTLD that coincides with a very popular and domain-registration-suitable word. In the .TV case we have an abbreviation of the word 'television', which explains why its registry entered into an alliance with Demand Media for a worldwide promotion of .TV as the preferred domain name for rich media content websites. .TV is open for registration to anyone with the exception of some reserved names such as .com.tv, .net.tv, .org.tv.
