The type of Domain Name Suffix tells what type of institution the sponsor or owner of the site is. The most prominent domain name suffixes are listed below.
|.com or .biz||Commercial business||www.sears.com|
|.edu||Educational site (schools, universities)||www.kent.edu|
|.org||Non-commercial sites (organizations)||www.heightslibrary.org|
|.mil||U.S. military organization||www.af.mil|
You may also see suffixes that relate to the state or country of origin. For example, Ohio officials may use state.oh.us as a suffix, while Pennsylvania officials use state.pa.us. A site based in the United Kingdom ends in co.uk while one from Russia ends in .ru.
