A top-level domain (TLD) is one of the domains at the highest level in the hierarchical Domain Name System of the Internet.

For all domains in lower levels, it is the last part of the domain name, that is, the last label of a fully qualified domain name. For example, in the domain name, the top-level domain is com (the "dot" and the word that follows it).
