What is a .cc (dot cc) domain?

Answer: The .cc domain suffix is the top-level domain (TLD) for the Cocos Islands. However, it is commonly used as an alternative to the ".com" suffix for commercial Web sites.

The .cc suffix is convenient because it is short and easy to say. However, not all Web hosting companies support .cc domains and they are not offered by many domain name registrars. Therefore, it is usually better to use an alternate domain name with a .com, .net, or .org suffix instead of selecting a .cc domain name.
