.tv is the country code top-level domain for Tuvalu and suitable for individuals or companies residing within this island nation. Alternatively, due to the Internet being the top source for video-sharing, .tv, as an abbreviation of television, would be perfect for websites enabling users to upload or watch videos.

Registry Details

.tv is the Internet country code top-level domain (ccTLD) for the island nation of Tuvalu.

Except for reserved names like .com.tv, .net.tv, .org.tv and others, any person in the world can register a .tv domain for a fee. The domain name is popular (and thus economically valuable) because it is an abbreviation of the word 'television' (othr similar ccTLDs are .me, .fm, .am, .cd, .dj and .mu). Such unconventional usage of TLDs in domain names are known as domain hacks. The domain is currently operated by dotTV, a VeriSign company; the Tuvalu government owns twenty percent of the company. In 2000, Tuvalu negotiated a contract leasing its Internet domain name ".tv" for $50 million in royalties over a 12-year period. The Tuvalu government receives a quarterly payment of US$1 million for use of the top-level domain.

On December 14, 2006, VeriSign announced an alliance with Demand Media, run by ex-MySpace chairman Richard Rosenblatt to market the .tv Top Level Domain Name (TLD) as the preferred web address for rich media content.

.tv Assignment
